Future Projects 2015

We are delighted to host the first ever WAN Future Projects Award this year. Running from January to September 2015, this is a celebration of excellence for ‘design only’ projects across the six core sectors. This is a huge new umbrella category that will generate global publicity for the 36 shorted listed and six winners that recognise vision and progressive thinking across our six core sectors: Education, Healthcare, Civic Spaces, Urban Design, Residential and Commercial. 

We will be looking to champion creations and concepts that have pushed their specific typology forward and proven an holistic and effective approach.

The award is split onto six main areas, with winners in each sector as follows: Education; Healthcare; Civic Spaces; Urban Design; Residential; Commercial

The WAN Future Project Award welcomes projects that are:

  • Concept only
  • Speculative designs
  • Unrealised competition wins
  • Projects “on hold”
  • Projects under construction

Judging criteria  

The jury will judge entries on a number of factors including quality of presentation, originality, innovation, form and special quality, sustainability and context, but the following two areas will carry the most weighting.

1. How your entry has pushed the specific typology and how that will benefit the site / context.

2. Specific examples of how the project will meet the specific client requirements.

3. Clear visualisations and straight forward descriptions of the whole project concept. This will inlcude specific facts and figures where necessary, such as:
      a. Total floor area in m2.
      b. Potential sustainability accreditations and specifically how this will be achieved.

Presentation is also of great importance, and judges will be looking for your ability to communicate the 'story' of your building, from the initial concept through to its completion.

Benefits of entering  

The winning and shortlisted entrants all receive dedicated press kits and their projects will be featured in a special edition of News Review which reaches over 160,000 property developers, architects, consultants and organisations in countries around the world.

The winning, shortlisted and commended entrants receive an award certificate and their project makes headline news on WAN.

Applicants will be featured permanently on the WAN AWARDS’ website and social media platforms, being seen by a large number of industry professionals. This includes Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.

 

The competition stages  

A long list of around twenty-five entries will initially be selected for each sector after the closing date. Further details of these projects will then be requested, including plans, sections, elevations and more technical information. From the twenty-five, a shortlist of six will be selected before an overall winner is chosen and championed.

Cost  

The entrance fee is £200 but an early registration price of £170 is available for entries made before 28th February 2015.
