AJ Architecture Awards 2018 finalists: Small project, Civic & Education

Indexe 8th

Here are the latest batch of finalists vying for five categories in the AJ Architecture Awards 2018

The shortlisted schemes have been designed by practices including IF_DO, Feilden Fowles and Stanton Williams. Studio Weave is among those shortlisted for Project of the Year (under £250k) for its Woodland Classrooms project, which was a finalist for AJ Small Projects 2018.

MUMA’s Storey’s Field Centre and Eddington Nursery – the hot favourite for this year’s Stirling Prize – is one of the projects nominated for Community & Faith Project of the Year, while the AJ Retrofit of the Year – Ian Ritchie Architects’ interventions at the Royal Academy of Music – is also in contention for Higher Education Project of the Year.

More than 120 projects were chosen by our judges to compete in this year’s AJ Architecture Awards, which celebrate the very best projects built in the UK. Mary Duggan, Sam Jacob and Eva Jiricna are among the expert judges who will visit every shortlisted project this autumn.

In addition to outstanding design, judges will consider each project in detail, assessing how it has met or exceeded its brief, how it has promoted client or community engagement and how it has excelled in the use of space or sense of place.

The AJ Architecture Awards launched last year when Reiach and Hall’s Nucleus project won Public Building of the Year and also scooped one of the top prizes, AJ Editor’s Choice. 

All winners will be revealed at an exclusive Gala Dinner at the Roundhouse in London on 4 December. The evening’s celebrations will culminate in the announcement of three special awards chosen from all entries: the AJ Building of the Year, the AJ Architect of the Year and the AJ Editor’s Choice Award.

Last week, shortlisted practices celebrated at a VIP reception at the ROCA London Gallery. 

The remainder of the shortlists in the contest’s 20 categories will be revealed over the coming week.
