The People's Canopy: An Architizer A+ Awards Finalist

Date uploaded: March 30, 2016

The People’s Canopy has been selected as a Finalist in the Architizer A+ Awards, placing the work amongst a handful in the world competing for  two of the most sought after awards: The Architizer A+ Jury Award and the Architizer A+ Popular Choice Award. The online public chooses the Architizer A+ Popular Choice Award and public voting is open until April 1st.

The People’s Canopy was the result of a year-long collaboration between In Certain Places and People’s Architecture Office (PAO), Beijing. Designed by PAO, on the theme of the city as a meeting place, the Canopy took centre stage at last year’s inaugural Lancashire Encounter Festival. It has since exhibited at the Beijing Culture and Art Center and taken part at the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism / Architecture, Hong Kong 2015/16. It will shortly also be found at the Shekou Design Museum, founded by China Merchants and the V & A, in Shenzhen.
