The renowned 3C Group has officially opened submissions for the fourth edition of the BLT Built Design Awards. These awards aim to acknowledge the expertise of professionals engaged in the realization of exceptional projects on a global scale, encompassing architectural firms, interior designers, landscape studios, and construction product innovators.
The program is open to professionals, emerging designers, and students until September 29, 2024, and promises to attract entries from some of the most forward-thinking firms from all around the world!
In 2023, the awards received over 700 submissions from 45 countries, showcasing the astonishing range and quality of projects. Top winners included Haus Balma, Switzerland, by Kengo Kuma & Associates for Architectural Design of the Year, Flat #6 in Brazil by Studio Mk27 for Interior Design of the Year, Phase Shifts Park by Mosbach Paysagistes for Landscape Architecture of the Year, and RENCO from the United States for Construction Product Design of the Year.
"The BLT Built Design Awards bring together the best and brightest in architecture and design, spotlighting inspired projects, accomplished leaders, and their innovative ideas," expressed Astrid Hébert, Co-founder and Program Director. "We are proud to support and promote these professionals, both established and emerging, as they push the boundaries of what is possible in the construction industry."
The award winners are selected through an in-depth voting process conducted by a jury panel consisting of renowned architects, academics, media representatives, and industry experts. Their selections showcase international design excellence, avant-garde architectural concepts, new sustainability approaches, and creativity in architecture, construction, interior, and landscape design.
The 2024 jury, comprising experienced architects, designers, developers, academics, and media representatives, will select the winners in each category in October 2024. Past jurors have included Stanislas Helou, founder of Thinking Luxury; Sonsoles Vela Navarro, Associate Director of the Architectural Program and Lecturer at Tulane University; Waad El Hadidy, president of The Medusan; and Thomas Hoepf, FAIA, Senior Vice President and Design Director at EXP Architects + Engineers, among others. The 2024 jury members will be announced later this year.
Last November, the BLT Built Design Awards Gala, held at the stunning KKL Luzern in Switzerland, welcomed influential figures from the global design community.
