Refurbishment and housing among most hotly contested categories

The long-awaited shortlist for the 2013 Architect of the Year Awards was announced today, with six practices selected for each of category.

BD received more than 200 entries this year, with refurbishment proving the most popular category, followed by small projects and housing.

Amanda Baillieu, editor-in-chief at BD, said: “The awards are always a barometer of where the work is, so it’s no surprise that refurbishment is the most hotly contested category, closely followed by housing.

“It’s also great to see so many practices entering for the first time.”

Other hotly contested categories include the international breakthrough architect, where Adjaye Associates is up against And Architects, AHMM and Studio Seilern, while Duggan Morris, Erect Architecture and Niall McLaughlin are among those shortlisted for the public building prize.

All 11 categories will now be judged by a panel including historian Will Palin, regeneration guru Clive Dutton and director architecture, design, fashion at the British Council Vicky Richardson.

The Architect of the Year Awards take place on December 3 at the Brewery in central London. Book your place here.

  • re the Slip House - I do wonder how the Town Planners approved it :
    it seems to me that it is in a road of terrace houses yet it projects in front of the building line, it has no reference or coherence with its neighbours, it has none of the characteristics of the local character, I don't regard it as a sculptural form.
    can anybody enlighten me how it was approved?

  • I'm not an architect. Whilst the small pictures shown in the article aren't uniformly awful, there's enough there to make me roll my eyes.

  • @Abominable snowman, why? Just out of interest.

  • I think it's this tendency to favour an aesthetic of confrontational awkwardness. Or, as in the first example, stern rationalism (although once the pupils are in, maybe it'll be fine).

  • Architects are such amazing downers on other's work, some really good stuff on this list.
