Eva Jiřičná, Crispin Kelly and Mary Duggan are among the judges announced for the inaugural AJ Architecture Awards

Also on the judging panel are Daisy Froud, Carl Turner and Shankari Raj Edgar, who along with other judges will visit every shortlisted project in the 23 categories.

The new AJ Architecture Awards – which are open to all practices, regardless of size – have proved popular, and we have been asked to extend the entry deadline, which is now Friday 28 July.


The AJ Architecture Awards will highlight the very best projects across a range of key categories – from community schemes and cultural projects to tall buildings and workplace designs.

All architects are invited to enter their completed UK projects built between January 2016 and July 2017.

Jury visits to successfully shortlisted projects will take place from 7 September to 3 November. In addition to stand-out design, our judges will consider each project in detail – such as 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.

All winners will be revealed at an exclusive Gala Dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 7 December. The evening’s celebrations will culminate in the announcement of three special awards, chosen from all entries: the AJ Design of the Year, the AJ Architect of the Year and the AJ Editor’s Choice Award.

All winning projects will feature in print in a special edition of the AJ and online, and winners will receive a special plaque to commemorate their success – and display on their building.
