design award, open to all women architects under 40, was judged by Richard Rogers, Doreen Lawrence, founding director, Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, Victoria Thornton, founding director, Open-City, Laura Lee, chief executive, Maggie's Centres, Peter Rees, City of London planning officer, Colette O'Shea, head of development of London portfolio, Land Securities and Martha Thorne, executive director, Pritzker Prize.
The judges were "impressed by the quality and diversity of Lawson's work, the sensitivity of her designs in diverse contexts. They were also impressed by her rapid rise, having become one of seven board directors of John McAslan + Partners, a top UK practice within four years of graduating. She is also the mother of a toddler. It seemed to the judging panel that Lawson was not so much emerging, as firmly established, and remarkable."
