AJ Architecture Awards 2018 finalists: Workplace, Masterplan and Mixed-use

Indexe 5th

Here are the finalists in contention for AJ Architecture Awards in the Workplace of the Year, Masterplan of the Year and Mixed-use Project of the Year categories

The shortlisted schemes have been designed by practices including Studio Egret West, SimpsonHaugh and Partners and Make Architects. Croydon Council’s in-house developer Brick by Brick is up for Masterplan of the Year, while the Stirling-shortlisted Bloomberg Headquarters by Foster + Partners is nominated in one of the two Workplace categories. Groupwork + Amin Taha Architects’ Clerkenwell Close scheme is vying for Mixed-use 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 AECOM’s North-West Cambridge development was named best Masterplan, while the Mixed-use victor was Fitzroy Place by Lifschtuz Davidson Sandilands and Sheppard Robson.

The 2017 Workplace of the Year was won by PLP Architecture for Sky Central. Owing to the high volume of entries this year, this category has been split into projects measuring below and above 20,000m².

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.
