The Kantor Centre of Excellence near King’s Cross in London and Templeman Library for the University of Kent, Canterbury, have both been selected as Regional Finalists in the Civic Trust Awards 2020.

Both projects will now be considered for a National Award or Commendation, by the National Judging Panel. Winning schemes will be presented with their award or commendation in March at the Imperial War Museum in Manchester.

The Civic Trust Awards aims to encourage the very best in architecture and environmental design, to improve the built environment for us all through design, sustainability, inclusiveness and accessibility, but also to reward projects that offer a positive cultural, social, economic or environmental benefit to their local communities.
