Seven projects and one practice comprise the Australian entries that have made it to the 2018 Dezeen Awards shortlist.

The awards program, which is a new initiative for the international design blog, attracted more than 3,500 submissions from 91 different countries. The program is divided into three main category groups: interiors, design and architecture. Special studio awards will recognize all-round design excellence for a body of work. 

Among the architectural projects on the shortlist are Breathe Architecture’s Nightingale 1 apartment building in Melbourne’s Brunswick, the 2017 MPavilion comission by international practice OMA and two Tasmanian hospitality projects – the krakani lumi walker’s accomodation and the Freycinet Lodge Coastal Pavilions by Liminal Architecture.

The Dezeen Awards are judged by an international panel, which includes Astrid Klein (Klein Dytham Architecture), Amanda Levete (Amanda Levete Architects), Sadie Morgan (DRMM), John Pawson (John Pawson Architects), Thomas Heatherwick (Heatherwick Studio) and Ma Yansong (Mad Architects).
