AJ Women in Architecture Awards: deadline extended

The deadline for the fourth annual AJ Women in Architecture Awards has been extended to the 8 December

The awards, which celebrate women working across the profession, recognise excellence in design and thought leadership while promoting role models for aspiring architects and young women in practice.

This year the AJ has also introduced a new award, aimed at recognising those who are not architects but have made a significant contribution to architecture and the built environment.

The prize is named after the architecture critic Ada Huxtable. She was the first full-time architecture critic at a US newspaper when she joined the New York Times in 1963, and was later awarded the first Pulitzer Prize for Criticism in 1970.

The AJ is asking for new award nominations for both this and the Jane Drew Prize, which recognises a woman architect for her outstanding contribution to the status of women in architecture.

Last year the prize was awarded to the late Kathryn Findlay, and previous winners of the high-profile accolade have included Zaha Hadid and Eva Jiřičná.

The AJ is also seeking candidates for the two other honours celebrating women architects: Woman Architect of the Year and Emerging Woman Architect of the Year.

Stirling Prize-shortlisted architect Francine Houben of Mecanoo picked up the Woman Architect of the Year Award at last year’s awards luncheon held at the Langham Hotel, in London, and Julia King won 2014 Emerging Woman Architect of the Year.

The deadline for entries to the awards, which are sponsored by Roca, is 8 December 2014. The winners will be announced at the next annual awards luncheon, to be held in February 2015.
