The Emirates Glass LEAF Awards 2009
The 2009 LEAF Awards took place on 4 September at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Berlin. The awards, sponsored by Emirates Glass, have rapidly become one of the most prestigious global architectural prizes acknowledging excellence in the international architectural, design and build professions. The awards are open to all companies, technologies and individuals that have made an outstanding contribution to the world of architecture and strive to set higher benchmarks for the design buildings of tomorrow.
The biggest names in architecture from around the world gathered at Berlin’s prestigious Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The event was hosted by actor, writer and comedian Neil Mullarkey and also featured fantastic entertainment throughout the night from Kit and the Widow.
This year’s event highlighted the keen international competition with many leading names in the architectural and design fields, and several new and less-well-known organisations vying for the coveted awards across the many categories. The 11 award categories, including the new Master Planning & Landscaping Award as well as the Residential Building of the Year Award (Single and Multiple Occupancy), attracted entries from 26 countries worldwide.
The winners of each category, designed to celebrate architectural excellence in the fields of innovation, structural and interior design across both private and public sectors, are listed below.
