Urbanism Awards winners announced: MARSEILLE

The Academy of Urbanism has today announced the winners of the prestigious 2014 Urbanism Awards.

Marseille was the big winner on the day, coming in just ahead of Istanbul and Malmö to walk away with The European City of the Year Award.

The other winners were Cork in The Great Town Award, Glasgow’s West End in The Great Neighbourhood Award, London’s Lamb’s Conduit Street in The Great Street Award and Birmingham’s Custard Factory in The Great Place Award.

The Awards recognise the best, most enduring or most improved urban environments. Votes came from the Academy’s 500 members, who decide on a number of social, economic and environmental factors, including good governance and vitality.

The results have demonstrated that successful places involve a good network of committed partners and a long term vision that looks beyond political time-frames.

Kevin Murray, Chairman of The Academy of Urbanism, said:

“With these awards we are celebrating inspirational and heroic stories of places that are saved, turned around, rediscovered and rejuvenated. Great places don’t just happen, they are planned, shaped and supported by human endeavour.”

5 must-see firework shows to start the New Year with a bang

New Year's tradition sees incredible fireworks displays taking place all around the world. And the transition from 2013 to 2014 will be no exception. Here's our selection of five fireworks shows that promise to be spectacular, original must-sees.

Dubai

After a blockbuster year for the city, which recently won hosting duties for the 2020 Universal Exposition, the emirate wants to end 2013 on a high note. The organizers of the city's fireworks show on December 31-January 1 hope to make it the biggest fireworks display in the world and receive recognition from the Guinness Book of World Records. Famous sites like the Palm Jumeirah, The World's manmade islands and the Burj Al Arab, Madinat Jumeirah and Jumeirah Beach hotels will be lit up. Over 200 pyrotechnicians will oversee 450,000 fireworks set off.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong plans to go all out with its fireworks show this year. The traditional display on Victoria Harbour will light up the city's sky, choreographed across six musical themes. The first fireworks will be launched at midnight in Tsim Sha Tsui, in Kowloon, then the show crosses the harbor for its finale above the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Center, in the Wan Chai district.

Barcelona

The Catalan city will put on a truly unique spectacle to mark the arrival of 2014. Put together by the Fura dels Baus company, the show will mix fireworks, water choreography and music by the famous Magic Fountain of Montjuic. At the core of the show will be El Ser del Milenio, an iron giant measuring 15 meters tall, who symbolizes the spirit of Barcelona.


Marseille

This year's European capital of culture, the southern French city will close 2013 with the final chapter of a light and sound spectacle created by Groupe F that has been performed throughout the year. A mix of fireworks, light and water choreography, music and storytelling, the spectacle has been seen in various towns in the region and will come to a dramatic conclusion at the Old Port of Marseille, starting at 7 PM.

New York

A million people are awaited at Times Square to celebrate the arrival of the new year. The climax of the USA's must-see event is the famous “Ball Drop” which counts down to midnight as the crowd's excitement builds. To best see the fireworks, a good spot is the Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn or a location in Manhattan.
