The York Design Awards encourage and celebrate good design in the built environment in York. Generally, the applications are for individual projects but the over-all objective is the protection and enhancement of the city as a whole. It is, therefore, logical that when a series of different projects come together to create a place of a very high quality the combined effect should merit an award. In such cases, it is quite possible that one or more of the designs that contribute to the whole might not be of sufficient quality on its own to rise to the high standards of a one-off award. But this should not prevent it being recognised with the other designs that go to make up the whole. In many respects, urban design is the peak of the York Design Awards that set out to promote good designs that come together for the sake of the city.
