The Scott Brownrigg-designed headquarters for the international not-for-profit organisation, CABI, has been shortlisted for ArchDaily’s Building of the Year awards.
CABI apply scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment. Scott Brownrigg worked alongside Project Managers and Lead Consultant Ridge and Partners LLP (Ridge) to complete a low energy design that offers a two-storey office space, successfully integrating an experimental bio-diverse landscape with a new collaborative flexible working environment.
At the heart of this project is CABI’s commitment to encouraging biodiversity and protecting the environment. The design is highly energy efficient with detailed strategies for materials, orientation and structures. The design includes a careful selection of materials for the building fabric, which will reduce the energy consumption, to embrace the aim of low carbon use in operation.
The ethos behind the ArchDaily Building of the Year Award is simple: the readers, the largest community of architects on the internet, vote to decide the best architecture of the year in 15 categories.
Over the next two weeks, you can vote and subsequently reward the best architecture published on the ArchDaily platform in 2020.
The first round includes voting to support the nomination of the project. This stage ends on 10 February. Please note you must be a registered user of the MyArchDaily platform. After this, five projects per category will move into the finalists stage, starting February 10th and ending on February 18th at 12:01AM EST. The winners will be announced on February 18th, 2021.
