00 Nominated for Young Architects of the Year Award 2012 / by Nick Ierodiaconou

Last night at the Jerwood Space, 00 were announced on the shortlist for YAYA 2012 alongside Bell Philips Architects, Hayhurst & Co, Coffey Architects, and vPPR.

As BD reports, “Of a number of submission from practices that were challenging the traditional role of the architect, the jury felt that 00’s entry was the most provocative -  and looked forward to quizzing it further in the next interview”.

We too are looking forward to the interview, which we understand you are all invited to, as an opportunity to discuss more openly what it is we actually do; community yes (although we would save “civic”), research yes (although we would say “evidence-based”), architecture definitely (although ARB, of course, might disagree).
