Towering achievements

The 2018 Brick Awards at the end of last year saw a roll-call of the great and the good celebrated. Its supreme winner was Stirling Prize nominated architect MUMA for its Storey’s Field Community Centre & Nursery in Cambridge. The competition was stiff. RIBAJ was impressed by the sublime Walthamstow Wetlands project by former Stirling winner Witherford Watson Mann, which was longlisted in this month’s MacEwen Award and won the Brick Awards’ refurbishment category. WWM’s refurb and adaptation of two redundant Victorian buildings called for some expert brickwork in the reinstatement of the tower on the former engine house – the  new visitor centre.
