The first shortlists have been announced for The Pineapples 2021 awards, including the projects vying for a golden pineapple for their masterplan in International Future Place.

 

The Pineapples are only awards that celebrate the best in making places where people thrive, and are run in association with the Design Council. Launched in 2019 by The Developer, The Pineapples are unique in seeking to celebrate places where people want to live, work, play, shop or learn. Shortlisted projects are presented in front of a live audience and the judging panel. Winners are awarded a golden pineapple trophy; the fruit is a traditional symbol of welcome in UK architecture.

 

The Design Council has supported The Pineapples since their launch in 2018. This year, with Design Economy 2021, the Design Council is exploring design’s social and environmental impact, as well as its economic contribution, giving us the most comprehensive assessment to date on the state of design in the UK.

 

The Design Council said: “We are proud to sponsor the Festival of Place and the Pineapple Awards. Our experience and evidence shows that well-designed neighbourhoods can have a transformational impact on us all, improving health and well-being, enhancing the environment and stimulating the economy.”

 

Get your pass to attend The Pineapples and see 40+ exemplar projects presented by developers and architects as they vie for a golden pineapple for excellence in design, development and placemaking

 

In 2021, the categories for Place of the Year, Place in Progress, Future Place and International Place are joined by five new categories to celebrate excellence in five specific areas: Community Engagement, Creative Reuse, Public Space, Activation and Sustainable Transport. These five categories replace the former Contribution to Place category.

 

Shortlisted built projects are visited where possible by at least one judge, who assesses the quality of these places using methodology developed with the Design Council and shaped using the 12 principles of public space by the Gehl Institute.

 

The shortlisted projects will be presented in front of a live audience during the Festival of Place: The Pineapples, 12-16 July with the winners announced on the final day
