At the heart of the festival is the largest architectural awards programme in the world. The Awards will showcase, compare and contrast an outstanding range of completed buildings created by a profession which has always looked beyond national borders to the wider world of architectural culture. Headed by Lord (Norman) Foster, the international judging panels will comprise architects, allied professionals, clients and critics, including a “super-jury”, who will decide the ‘best in show’ prize – the first architectural ‘Prix de Barcelona’ .
Entries will be accepted from April 2008, with a closing date at the 20 June.
Shortlisting will be carried out by an international jury during July 2008. At this stage, 16 buildings will be shortlisted in each of the competition’s 16 categories (ie, 256 buildings in total).
All shortlisted architects will then present their work live to juries and audiences at the Festival, competing against each other to become category winners. With 16 categories covering 96 building types, the awards programme is designed to showcase your latest completed buildings, big or small, from anywhere in the world.
