      Scottish firm NORD Architecture wins New Headquarters for Wexford County Council Architectural Competition
      Archiseek.com

      Last summer Wexford County Council announced the open, two-stage competition in order to procure a building of outstanding architectural quality. A total of 94 entries were received from around the world and after a short-listing process, which gave the six shortlisted entries the opportunity to develop their proposals further, NORD Architecture were selected as winners. NORD (Northern Office for Research and Design) was founded by Robin Lee and Alan Pert in July 2002. In 2005 the co-directors were included in the Architects Journal exhibition ‘40 Under 40’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The exhibition showcased the best young practices in the UK. In 2006 NORD Architecture won the prestigious Young Architect of the Year Award, the only practice outside London to have reached the final list. They have also made The Observer Hot List 2007.

      This looks really good. They’re a great practice.
      Have a look at the destiny church project. Shows what they’re capable of.

      Hey if they’re not up to it, they’re not up to it. This is an interesting looking project – will remain to see how it develops, Nord is definitely a practice to keep an eye on.

      I admire the achievement of the project but marcoahkogan has more style.
      There are many women in architecture that should show there curves and soft sides.
      Concrete is to cold for me!
