The full list of Finalists can be seen HERE

The judges had over 130 entries to enjoy across 11 different award categories covering Commercial Building, Housing, Light + Surface, Public Building, Landscape + Public Realm, Temporary Structures and Architectural Photography.

From the outset the judges were looking for ‘a really strong approach to materiality’ and the need to ‘balance sustainability with innovative materials’.

Whilst the UK supplied the majority of Finalists there was the usual strong list of projects from India as well as Finalists from Australia, Canada, China, France, Latvia, Spain, Somaliland, and the UAE.

Practices with multi-finalists were Studio AVT Architects with 4; Emil Eve Architects and Brimelow McSweeney Architects both with 3.

The Architectural Photography Award, first launched in 2022, saw a strong increase in entries both from the UK and abroad.

Tickets to the Awards’ Presentation on Thursday 9 February at the Business Design Centre in London are now available, CLICK HERE to order! Hosting the Presentation will be Jack Pringle, Managing Director of Studio Pringle.
