INSIDE: World Festival of Interiors 2013 shortlist revealed

  • Comment

David Kohn’s Carrer Avinyó house in Barcelona features among 59 international projects shortlisted for prizes at this year’s INSIDE: World Festival of Interiors

Divided into 12 award categories, the finalists will go on show at the World Festival of Interiors, which coicides with the World Festival of Architecture at the Moshe Safdie-designed Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore from 2 to 4 October 2013.

Shortlisted schemes include Klein Dytham’s Google headquarters in Tokyo and WOHA’s Park Royal high-rise hotel and office building in Singapore.

Projects in the UK competing for awards include citizenM London Bankside by Dutch outfit concrete and VW+BS’s Uxbridge Street residential development in west London.

A jury chaired by RCA Professor Emeritus Nigel Coates will select the twelve categories winners and award the coveted World Interior of the Year prize on the final day.

Paul Finch, Programme Director of the World Architectural Festival, said: ‘Interior architecture and design are related but separate disciplines to mainstream architecture, and the INSIDE award and talks programme show why. From digital design to creating delight, the Festival will open up fresh ideas and demonstrate the influence of interiors on how we work, rest and play.’
