Giles Miller Studio’s BBC Pavilion shortlisted for Surface Design Awards 2020

December 2019

Renowned practices including Steven Holl Architects, Mikhail Riches, AECOM, WilkinsonEyre and Chris Dyson Architects are among those shortlisted for 2020 Surface Design Awards, which exemplify creative use of surface materials and lighting.

There are an impressive 39 projects across 14 categories in total, from retail and public buildings to commercial projects and housing, including new categories in public realm and affordable housing for 2020. Such was the quality of entries submitted that some projects won nominations across several categories. 

Giles Miller Studio’s BBC Pavilion project, shortlisted in the Temporary Structure category, consists of thousands of recyclable aluminium ‘petals’ on the front of the building, which open up as a complex mechanical concertina. It was first installed in aircraft hangars in Yorkshire before being transported to the Cannes beachfront where it was reconstructed, a logistical and design feat which found favour with the judges.
