Martin Downie, Director of the Liverpool School of Art and Design collected the award on LJMU's behalf.
Speaking after the event, Martin said:
“The Art and Design Academy is a high quality user friendly building that has allowed us to deliver art and design teaching in new and exciting ways. In addition to providing innovative teaching and learning space for our students, it has also given us a venue to stage events and exhibitions that are open to the wider community. We are honoured to have received a commendation from the Civic Trust and look forward to continuing and contributing to what the Academy offers”.
