A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR


Alison Carter, editor, World Interiors News

"All architecture, and the interiors that lie within, have a vital impact on our lives.  

Despite the current challenges as the world grapples to manage the pandemic, the WAN Awards and the WIN Awards shine a light forward and promote the visions of the creative and outstanding work of innovative and imaginative architects and interior designers worldwide.

The awards are supported by World Architecture News (WAN) and World Interiors News (WIN) which provide a global news platform for architects and designers.  In 2020, the site was regularly viewed by some 221 countries worldwide. 

It’s important to amplify and celebrate the positive news in these global sectors and 2020 saw the launch of Female Frontiers, Powered by World Architecture News.  This new awards scheme, specifically designed to for women in architecture, is supported by the extremely popular Women Build podcast. Each episode highlights inspirational women in the global architecture arena, asks what’s important to them and points the spotlight on outstanding projects. 

Get involved with the WIN Awards 2021!"

Categories


Interiors

Education and Learning

We are looking at learning in its broadest sense. The category covers formal educational institutions such as schools, colleges and universities. But it also includes research centres, libraries and training facilities. It combines both public and private sector facilities.

Submissions should include details of the interiors, highlighting any particular design features, materials and lighting.

Experiential Design

This category will reward the best use of lighting, audio visual and visual effects for installations, cultural venues, theatre productions, exhibitions and retail, trade show stands, display spaces, pavilions etc.

Submissions should give details of the project and its context, highlighting and explaining in simple terms the technologies used and the impact they had.

This category is looking for projects that have utilised light in a purposeful and meaningful way to transform the space. From decorative lighting to integrated lighting systems, the judges will be looking for excellent design, innovation and evidence of energy-efficiency.


Cultural Venues

We are looking for the best experiences for visitors to concert halls, museums, galleries and the like and the permanent and temporary exhibitions they offer. Submissions should include an outline of the interiors, highlighting any particular design features, materials, lighting and special effects.


Healthcare and Wellbeing

In a Covid-19 aware world, we are seeing continued growth in the healthcare and wellbeing sectors. As hygiene remains more critical than ever before, designers must look beyond pure aesthetics and instead focus on how to effectively create clinically safe spaces that are welcoming as well as being better places in which to work.
