AJ Architecture Awards 2018 finalists: Refurb, Cultural and Heritage

Indexe 4th

Here are the finalists vying for AJ Architecture Awards in the Refurb of the Year, Cultural Project of the Year and Heritage Project of the Year categories

The shortlisted schemes have been designed by practices including David Chipperfield Architects, Haworth Tompkins and Architecture 00. Stirling Prize-nominated Tate St Ives is one of the buildings nominated in the Cultural Project of the Year category, while Donald Insall Associates’ Temperate House at Kew Gardens is one of six buildings nominated for Heritage 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 the 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 AL_A’s V&A courtyard was named best Cultural Project. Acanthus Clews’ Warwick Hall Community Centre triumphed in the Heritage category and went on to be crowned AJ Design of the Year.

The 2017 Refurb of the Year was Allford Hall Monaghan Morris’s One King William Street. Owing to the high volume of entries this year, this category has been split into projects valued under and over £20 million.

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.
