Hadid, Brooks, and Chipperfield buildings in running for Design of the Year

Just two UK schemes have made the shortlist in the architectural category for the Design Museum’s 2014 Design of the Year Award

Alison Brooks’ Stirling Prize-shortlisted Newhall Be housing scheme in Essex was named among the finalists alongside the only other UK scheme, namely 6a Architect’s façade for Paul Smith’s store in Mayfair London.

Zaha Hadid Architects, David Chipperfield Architects and John Pawson also made the shortlist with buidlings in Azerbijan, Mexico and Germany respectively

The architecture category is one of seven categories in the awards which also recognise digital, fashion, furniture, graphic, product and transport design.

All of the shortlisted designs will go on display at the Design Museum from March 26 to August 25. Judges will choose a winner from each category and one overall winner, to be announced later in the year.
