Congratulations to Jonathan Rose at Aecom

Winner of the AJ Architecture Award: Masterplanner of the Year for NW Cambridge....

We were lucky enough to work with Jonathan and his team at Aecom in the early days of the NW Cambridge Development, when Colander ran the architectural competitions to find the architects for the nine Lots in Phase 1.

It was a real pleasure to be involved in a project that was clearly making some big statements about social and environmental sustainability in new urban developments - especially given the greenfield nature of the site.  

One of the most interesting challenges this project posed was creating a home for University graduates while at the same time creating a piece of the city.  It is encouraging to hear that the jury felt that a suitable balance has been found between the collegiate and urban characteristics of the plan.    

It is wonderful that the efforts of Jonathan and his client the University of Cambridge have been recognised.  Many congratulations to all involved!
