Eleanor Lakelin Shortlisted for Wood Awards 2017 by Sarah Myerscough Gallery

We are pleased to announce that Eleanor Lakelin has been shortlisted for the Wood Awards 2017.  The Wood Awards is the UK’s premier competition for excellence in architecture and product design in the world’s only naturally sustainable material. The Awards aim to recognise, encourage and promote outstanding design, craftsmanship and installation using wood. The competition began in 1971 as the Carpenters’ Award and was relaunched in 2003 as the Wood Awards. The Awards have had an impact on the architectural and design landscape, becoming a ‘mark of excellence’ in wood with past Arnold Laver Gold Award Winners including Adam Richards Architects for Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, Niall McLaughlin Architects for The Fishing Hut and, most recently, Foster+Partners for Maggie’s at the Robert Parfett Building. The Awards’ elite independent judging panel of professional experts and specialists not only judges the submitted entries but visits the shortlisted projects in person, making the Wood Awards as meaningful and rigorous a competition as possible.
