Glazing Vision attend 2015 Manchester Design Awards

Glazing Vision attend 2015 Manchester Design Awards
02/07/2015

Earlier this month Glazing Vision attended the 2015 Manchester Design Awards hosted by the Manchester Society of Architects, who are celebrating their 150th Year.

The event began with an opening evening lecture by Jacob Kurek from Henning Larsen Architects, principal of the company’s subsidiary in Saudi Arabia, Henning Larsen Middle East. Additional speakers were from Glazing Vision and Icopal.

The opening evening kicked off a week long exhibition at the Anthony Burgess Institute, featuring details of all the award entries leading up to the awards evening itself held in the Peoples History Museum.

The 2015 awards was extremely well attended with a fantastic buzz surrounding the event. The cream of Manchester’s architectural community were all present and there was also some exciting new talent in attendance, who have already begun to influence the way we all look at the built environment with fresh ideas and forward thinking.

Glazing Vision was very proud to include one of its flagship products, the hinged Skydoor rooflight at the event which enjoyed an enthusiastic response from many architects.

The actual awards themselves proved a huge talking point; designed by SixTwo Architects to reinforce Manchester Architects’ new brand identity, they were dubbed ‘Architectural Oscars’ for the deserving winners.

Jon Shooter, Glazing Visions Managing Director, presented the innovatively designed award for ‘One Off Housing’ to GA Studio Architects for their Passivhaus 1109 project.

In all there were 16 awards presented, including a Fellowship Award for Roger Stephenson OBE who has been intimately involved in the urban regeneration of Manchester and continues to be involved in major work in the city.
