Andreas Ruby was at the ceremony to collect the award in person.

The shortlist of eight books was read by a group of committed urban design practitioners and academics over the summer and autumn before they reached a final decision on the winning book. We would like say a warm thank you to those judges: Louie Sieh (chair), Marc Furnival, Juliet Bidgood, Jonathan Kendall and Georgia Butina-Watson.
