An eco-home, a school, a church and a nature reserve are just some of the contenders for a Hackney design award that will be chosen by the public.
Everyone is being invited to vote for their favourite building or space in the Hackney Design Awards People’s Choice category.
Hackney Council received 50 nominations, and an expert judging panel has narrowed the list down to the 16 based on the “quality of design and contribution made to the surrounding area”.
The entry with the most votes by October 17 will be announced as the winner.
