Manchester Museum, The Whitworth (twice!) and the planned Brunswick Park have been named as some of the best examples of the city's built environment
Earlier this year, user inspired civic movement Manchester Shield ran the first people's vote on the best and worst of Manchester built and proposed since the millennium.
The University featured in four categories:
Best Built Design

Best Proposed Public Realm

- Silver: Manchester Museum
Best Heritage Proposal

Manchester Shield seeks to empower citizens in Manchester by promoting their collaboration in a better built environment and city. The Awards and Unforgivables were announced in July 2016.
