AR Emerging Architecture awards shortlist announced

Friday 30th October 2020 – The 16 shortlisted architects include emerging practices working in China, Japan, South Korea and Vietnam, Paraguay, Mexico and Peru, and in Kenya and India, as well as in the UK, Ireland, Spain, France, Portugal and Switzerland

2020 AR Emerging Architecture awards news

We are delighted to announce the 16-strong shortlist for the 2020 AR Emerging Architecture awards. The 2020 shortlist includes practices that collaborate with local people in Peru and Vietnam, create extraordinary homes in Ireland and Japan, and intervene in rural landscapes in Spain and Mexico.

Some practise across borders, in Dublin and Belfast, and in Geneva, Lisbon and Madrid. Public squares are carved out of the city of Olot and a disused apartment building given new life in Seoul. Buildings are made of earth in Paraguay and of bricks in London. In a remote bookshop in China, architecture and furniture blur and combine; in Kenya, as much care is given to a seat as to a building. Programmes include schools and community spaces in India, a medical centre in France, and a marketplace in Mexico.

While the coronavirus pandemic continues to keep us apart, we are delighted to be holding this year’s judging virtually, with each of the 16 shortlisted practices presenting their projects to our jury of previous Emerging Architecture finalists, including Manuel Aires Mateus, Dorte Mandrup and Sameep Padora. The judging will be held during WAFVirtual, a week-long digital architecture festival running 30 November to 4 December 2020, where we will also be bringing together and catching up with AR Emerging Architecture alumni in a series of revealing conversations.

AR Emerging Architecture awards

First launched in 1999, the AR Emerging Architecture awards grant early recognition to young designers and celebrate the architectural stars of tomorrow. Since 2018, the awards have recognised a body of work rather than a single building, and aspiring candidates share a small portfolio of three projects with us: a completed building, a work in progress, and an idea. Early winners include Shigeru Ban, Thomas Heatherwick and Sauerbruch Hutton; more recently, Carla Juaçaba, Avenier Cornejo and Frida Escobedo. While the AR can take no credit for their individual talents, the award contributed to the success of these designers by promoting them on a global stage.

Announced later in 2021, the winner will receive a £10,000 prize and a second practice will be awarded the Peter Davey Prize, now in its third year and selected by the AR editors in tribute to Peter Davey, former AR Editor and founder of Emerging Architecture. The winners will take home a specially commissioned trophy and all finalists will participate in a series of panel discussions and have their work exhibited.
