The SSE Hydro has been recognised with a further three industry awards, making it six gongs since the venue opened at the end of last year.
Scotland’s new concert and event arena was awarded the Chairman’s Award for Architecture at The Scottish Design Awards on 5 June 2014 in Glasgow. At the same event, the venue’s designers Foster + Partners and Arup picked up two further gongs in the ’Architecture – Lighting’ and’ Architecture: Leisure/Culture Building or Project’ categories.
The previous hat-trick of awards included Most Stylish Venue at the Scottish Style Awards and two further accolades for design, one of which was the Supreme Award presented by the Glasgow Institute of Architects.
“These awards are a fantastic achievement and testament to how well The SSE Hydro has been received,” says Peter Duthie, CEO of SEC Ltd and The SEE Hydro. “From the day we opened it has been a team effort and everyone involved should be warmly commended.
“With the arrival of both the Commonwealth Games next month and a full calendar of events throughout the year there will seldom be a quiet day. It’s going to be a massive year for us.”
