2nd prize: Trent Basin Urban Regeneration, by Denny Chan & Tom Bennett [University of Nottingham] http://www.architectsjournal.co.uk/Pictures/web/b/v/x/Second-prize.-Vie_380.jpg
Sneinton's industrial area, sandwiched between the Colwick Loop road and the River Trent, is to get an injection of fresh ideas under plans to be drawn up by Blueprint, the regeneration team behind Green Street in the Meadows and the former Albany Works site on Carlton Road.

The Trent Basin site, with its crumbling 1930s concrete warehouses and inlet from the river, have featured in a number of waterside regeneration plans, which failed to get off the drawing board during the economic boom years. It is thought that the new plans will be more modest and achievable, with a focus on sustainable housing.

Meanwhile, the results of a student design competition for the site have been announced. The winning schemes have been published in an Architects Journal article. Illustrated is the second prize scheme by Denny Chan & Tom Bennett of the University of Nottingham.
