Future projects take centre stage at WAN Awards

Henning Larsen’s masterplan to revive the Belfast waterfront was one of the winners in the future projects awards of the World Architecture News Awards 2018. The Belfast Waterside masterplan was the winner in the Future Projects Urban Design Award, being praised by the awards judges as a “tasteful and well conceived plan.” The regeneration plan includes offices, a hotel, homes across a range of tenures, retail and leisure space, plus a new pedestrian and cycle bridge.
