09 Jul 2009
A film previewing the soon to be completed Angel Building in London has won the Best Overall Architectural Film award at this year’s Architectural 3D Awards. The awards, presented in Spain last night at the international animation conference ‘Mundos Digitales’, recognises the best works of architectural imagery and animation from around the world.
Designed and created by The Neighbourhood and commissioned by Derwent London, the Angel film was nominated for all four awards in the Film/Animation category. From over 150 entries the judges, from some of the world’s leading architectural and animation studios, awarded the Angel film the top award of Best Overall Architectural Film as well as the Industry Choice Award. The film showcases Derwent London’s Angel Building, a 264,000 sq ft redevelopment on the Clerkenwell and Islington borders. Currently under construction and due to complete in summer 2010,
over half the building is already pre-let to Cancer Research UK.
Simon Silver, Head of Development at Derwent London, said: “The Neighbourhood have made a spectacular film that meticulously details the Angel Building’s striking design and architecture. To have our building recognised for such an award is testament to Derwent London’s commitment to creating innovative and high-quality buildings.”
Ben Davies, Managing Director of The Neighbourhood, said: “We are delighted to win Best Overall Film/Animation and the Industry Choice Award for the Angel film that we directed and produced on behalf of our client, Derwent London. In this current financial climate the commissioning of promotional films shows confidence in our team and our creative approach. The Neighbourhood team strives to make memorable and engaging pieces of communication, so to have a piece of promotional work recognised by not only the premier awards for CGI architectural
visualisation, but also by our own contemporaries, is a real thrill.”
