International Awards Shortlist Announced BY INSIDE: World Festival of Interiors

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Marina Bay Sands, Singapore 2-4 October 2013 – INSIDE reveals the shortlist of multi-disciplinary design practices from across the globe

Singapore, July 8, 2013 – As INSIDE 2013 draws nearer, the awards panel, including Nigel Coates, Linda Morey Smith and Nicholas Stringer, have diligently whittled-down entries to a diverse shortlist of 59 projects across this year’s 12 diverse categories: Bars and Restaurants, Creative Re-use, Culture, Display, Education, Health, Hotels, Offices, Residential, Shopping Centres, Shops and Transport.

INSIDE’s awards are truly international; celebrating today’s inspired and most accomplished interiors from the last 12 months. Short-listed designers are competing from countries far and wide including Australia, Brazil, Japan and China to INSIDE’s host, Singapore, and other European destinations, including the UK.

A selection of the shortlisted entrants include Anglo-Japanese architects, Klein Dytham’s fun and inspiring Google Japan headquarters in Tokyo and Singapore-based architecture practice WOHA’s incredible Park Royal on Pickering – a striking high-rise hotel and office building in Singapore, with contours that form planted valleys, gullies and waterfalls.

London-based design firms include architects Zaha Hadid, David Kohn and VW+BS. UK-located projects include the vibrant citizenM London Bankside by Dutch design firm concrete and VW+BS’s west London residential project, Uxbridge Street.

Says Paul Finch, Programme Director of World Architectural Festival:
“Interior architecture and design are related but separate disciplines to mainstream architecture, and the INSIDE award and talks programme show why. From digital design to creating delight, the Festival will open up fresh ideas and demonstrate the influence of interiors on how we work, rest and play.”

The shortlisted entries will now pitch against each other in live presentations over a period of three days to a stellar line up of international judges, including: Odile Decq, ODBC; Nigel Coates, Nigel Coates Studio; Lyndon Neri, Neri & Hu; Eero Koivisto, Claesson Koivisto Rune; Pernilla Ohrstedt, Pernilla Ohrstedt Studio; Linda Morey Smith, MoreySmith; Nicholas Stringer, Shed Design; Shawn Sullivan, Rockwell Group and Rob Wagemans, concrete. It is one of the most significant opportunities for designers to promote their work globally in the 2013 calendar.
