The Davidson Prize names finalists of 2021 competition

The Davidson Prize has revealed the 3 finalists. With Alison Brooks, Thomas Heatherwick (Heatherwick Studio), Narinder Singh SagooSonia Solicari (Museum of the Home) and Michelle Ogundehin on the jury panel, the overall winner will be announced in June 2021 as part of the London Festival of Architecture.

The universality of the Covid-19 pandemic has meant that the subject matter of the Prize: ‘Home/Work – A New Future’ was something we all experienced over the past year. As a result submissions were, in a lot of cases, more autobiographical than what these designers and thinkers might have produced under ‘the old normal’.” – Alison Brooks

Your Brent Magazine | Durham & Gloucester Court

Spring 2021’s edition of ‘Your Brent’ magazine features an article with some new residents of ABA’s Durham & Gloucester Court, part of the South Kilburn Estate Regeneration. When asked whether they still supported the award-winning regeneration of the estate at the residents’ ballot, the community overwhelmingly backed the council’s plans to continue rebuilding the neighbourhood – with 84% voting yes. We are honoured to be part of this journey and contribute to a real sense of place and belonging. Explore the story
