Handful of hopes

JUST five projects in Scotland – two of them by the same architect – are among the 86 winners in the 2013 Civic Trust Awards.
Reiach and Hall Architects did the double with its designs for Forth Valley College at the Alloa and Stirling campuses, while Page Park got its name on the list for its work at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh. Rounding off the handful are Anderson Bell Christie for the Coll community centre and bunkhouse and Ingenium Archial for The Vine Trust Barge in Edinburgh.
All 86 schemes will receive an award, commendation or community recognition with six special awards to be presented to schemes for excellence in specific areas.
The 54th awards ceremony will be held March 9 in Cardiff.
