Foster + Partners top AJ120 and receive Twenty Years of Excellence Award

Norman Foster and Foster + Partners were presented with the Twenty Years of Excellence Award at last night’s AJ120 Awards ceremony, in recognition of the practice’s contribution to British architecture and its achievements over the past two decades since the start of the AJ100 programme. In addition, Foster + Partners topped the AJ120 for the fourth year in a row and, together with Alvar Aalto, Norman Foster was also named as the architect – living or dead – whose work is deemed most inspirational to practices, in the AJ’s survey of peers.

The AJ120 Awards recognise the achievements of practices in the UK, based on survey results. Celebrating the AJ Awards’ twentieth anniversary, the award for Twenty Years of Excellence is presented at the jury’s discretion.
