ArchDaily and Strelka have announced a shortlist of 15 architectural projects nominated for the joint ArchDaily & Strelka Award, which celebrates emerging architects and new ideas that transform the contemporary city.
The finalists were selected by the readers of ArchDaily and Strelka Mag. The second stage of voting, which will last until August 31, will decide the three winners.
The open call invited emerging architects to submit their built projects that emphasize sustainability, research-based and participatory design, and the innovative use of materials. Architects and architecture and design firms that started their practice no more than 10 years ago could apply with projects that were built in the past five years. We have received projects from over 100 offices from Armenia, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan, but only 50 of them made it to the long list, which has since been narrowed down to 15 finalists.
The finalists are:
Apart Hotel Dolgorukovskaya 25 / APEX, Russia
Atyrau Bridge / New Moon Architects, Kazakhstan
Durtuli Community Spaces / Orchestra Design, Russia
Gaidar Cultural and Recreational Park / IRGSNO, Russia
House in Artana / NS Studio, Georgia
Landscape Park Sokolskaya Gora / Project Group 8 + PARK, Russia
