The Architectural Review (AR) has announced the 14 shortlisted architects for the 2018 AR Emerging Architecture Awards, including emerging practices from around the world, will have the opportunity to present their projects in person to our judging panel at the World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam.
Shortlisted architects will have the opportunity to present their projects to the judges, who are all previously commended in the awards: Spanish architect Ángela García de Paredes of Paredes Pedrosa, finalists of the inaugural 1999 AR Emerging Architecture awards; Indian architect Gurjit Singh Matharoo commended in the 2009 edition; and Ronald Rietveld of Dutch practice RAAAF, winners in 2013.
With the AREA awards now in their 20th year, the judging process and award celebrations will be held at WAF from 28–30 November in Amsterdam. This year, for the first time, the AR will recognise a body of work rather than a single building. Aspiring candidates were asked to send us a small portfolio of three projects: a completed building, a work in progress, and an idea. The winner will receive a £10,000 prize – and, alongside the shortlisted projects, will be published in a special edition of The Architectural Review.
In addition to the winning and highly commended projects selected by the panel of judges, this year the AR will introduce the Peter Davey Prize – a prize awarded to the editors’ choice, celebrating the twentieth edition of Emerging Architecture. The prize commemorates the AR’s 11th and second longest-serving Editor, Peter Davey, who founded the AR Emerging Architecture awards in 1999 and sadly passed away earlier this year.
The 2018 shortlist includes practices that exercise an economy of intervention in Rio de Janeiro and Mallorca, or a return to earth in new buildings across Uganda and Nepal; whose projects range in scale from single residences delicately balanced in the landscapes of Ireland and Chile, to a whole housing development in New Orleans; whose programmes range from a beautifully detailed pavilion in Saint-Vincent-sur-Jard, through school facilities – classrooms in London and a ‘hygiene station’ in Yunnan – to the underloved industrial in Denmark and Portugal, and the architecture of death, between memorialisation in Mexico and funerals in Japan.

Launched in 1999, the AR Emerging Architecture awards grant early recognition to young designers and celebrate the architectural stars of tomorrow.
Previous winners have included Shigeru Ban, Anna Heringer, Thomas Heatherwick, Jürgen Mayer H and Frida Escobedo, designer of this year’s Serpentine Pavilion in London.
While the AR can take no credit for their individual talents, the award galvanised the success of these architects by promoting them on a global stage.
