2015 INTBAU Excellence Awards Presented During World Congress

The first INTBAU Excellence Awards were presented on Thursday 19th February to very deserving winners and highly commended entrants in four categories: new building; urban design; community engagement; and emerging talent. A special Visionary Supporter award was also presented to INTBAU’s long-standing benefactor, Richard H. Driehaus.

Over 100 submissions were received from more than 20 architects, urban designers, and craftspeople from around the world. The awards selection panel, which was chaired by Anne Fairfax (ICTP member, Fairfax & Sammons Architects), had a very difficult time selecting the winners from such a large number of outstanding submissions.

Other selection panel members included Michael Lykoudis (ICTP member, Dean of the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture), Robert Adam (INTBAU UK Chair, ADAM Architecture), Maria Sanchez (ICTP member, Estudio Urbano), and Robbie Kerr (IYP member, ADAM Architecture).
