Two developments in SE1 have been nominated for a prestigious design award - and the judges want to know what you think.
The local nominees are the Keyworth Centre – a new academic block for London South Bank University – and Coopers Road Estate, for the regeneration of an existing Peabody housing estate off the Old Kent Road.
Awards are only given where the scheme is considered of economic, social or physical benefit to the local community. So if you have a view – maybe you walk past one of these places everyday, or work, live or play there – the judging team want to hear it. Contact your local judge, Hannah Mummery on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 020 7539 7908
