i360 named Project of the Year

Brighton & Hove’s British Airways i360 has been awarded the South East’s ‘Project of the Year’ by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

It also scooped the ‘Design Through Innovation’ and ‘Tourism & Leisure’ awards.

The RICS said that the city ‘has a long tradition of expressing its identity through remarkable architecture and British Airways i360 continues this tradition of celebratory structures.’

Councillor Alan Robins, chair of the Tourism, Development and Culture Committee, said: “This is fantastic news for everyone involved in making the i360 happen. These awards highlight how the attraction has really made its mark on Brighton & Hove’s seafront and is a great addition to our tourism economy.”
