The winners of the ar+d 2001 awards were announced today in Copenhagen.
The competition, run by AJ's sister title, The Architectural Review, and Danish design company d line, was set up to recognise emerging talent in the next generation of international architects.
The award also rewards the critical progression from theoretical work to built form. Only built projects were eligible.
There were 700 entries from 60 countries. The award winners shared £10,000 prize money and received trophies for their work.
The winners were:
lTaiko Shono, for her urban landscape at Onahama, Japan;
lMeck + Koppel's cemetery complex in Riem, Germany;
lBAAS, for its mortuary in Leon;
lAtelier 4d, for its regeneration of Namur, Belgium;

lSilja Tillner, for its transformation of Vienna's Town Hall (below) with the use of a retractable roof over the main courtyard; and lJae Cha, for a community centre in Honduras.
Eighteen other projects received special commendations from the jury. These covered a huge range of schemes - from a government building in Svalbard in the Arctic to a balloon pavilion in Thailand.
