Southend Pier selected finalist for MIPIM Awards 2013

The MIPIM Awards jury has selected Southend Pier as one of four project finalists in the category Best Refurbished Building.

Southend Pier is closely associated with the town and particularly to the typology of Southend’s shoreline. Sited at the pier head, the Cultural Centre brings new life to the promenade and reclaims the landmark structure as the town’s main attraction for both residents and tourists. The sweeping geometric form and harmonising palette of materials celebrates the topography of the windswept site integrating it into the scenic landscape. Read more about the project.

The 2013 edition of the MIPIM Awards has attracted a record number of entries with 175 projects from 46 countries competing. The 36 finalists will compete in an onsite vote during MIPIM. The winners will be announced at the MIPIM Awards ceremony on Thursday, March 14, 2013.
