At the Stone Federation of Great Britain Awards held in London on Friday last, Waterford’s Medieval Museum won the top prize in the natural stone façade category.
Beating off stiff competition from some really remarkable and stunning contemporary buildings the Medieval Museum was lauded for the sophistication of its design and the extremely high standard of the workmanship.
The museum was designed in-house by the Architects Department of Waterford City and County Council and the award was accepted on behalf of the Council by the Museum’s senior architect, Rupert Maddock.
These prestigious awards are held only every two years and this internationally recognised award is an endorsement of this wonderful piece of modern architecture that now adorns the Viking Triangle.
Hearty congratulations due to Rupert Maddock and all his colleagues in the Architects Department on another good news story for our city!
