Australian projects in the running for inaugural Dezeen Awards

Twenty-three Australian projects are among the 218 architecture projects longlisted for the 2018 Dezeen Awards.

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

Australian projects are longlisted in every architecture category and are particularly well represented in the hospitality category, with six longlisted entries.

The longlist will be judged by a panel of international judges, which includes Astrid Klein (Klein Dytham Architecture, Amanda Levete (ALA), Sadie Morgan (DRMM), John Pawson (John Pawson Architects), Thomas Heatherwick (Heatherwick Studio) and Ma Yansong (Mad Architects). The shortlist will be announced in August.
