Judges announce projects in the running for Urban Design of the Year 

The Urban Design sector offered the perfect opportunity for a WAN Awards first as we expanded the entry guidelines to allow both built and unbuilt projects to be submitted. After long-listing a total of 63 projects, two juries met this week with great anticipation, and weren't left disappointed.

The largest submission to any of our awards so far saw an exceptional 104 projects ranging from bridges and airports, through to masterplans and smaller urban designs, from a public convenience in Melbourne, Australia to an urban art park in Hong Kong.

After a speedy start whittling a longlist of 29 entries down to 8, the jury for Built Projects, chaired by Alastair Lansley CBE, found themselves torn between projects of extremely high quality to reach a shortlist of 6. Eventually they concluded that they simply couldn't discard any of the 8 projects and two were chosen to receive an honourable mention.

33 projects entered the Unbuilt Projects longlist and the jury for this category, headed by Piers Gough, found the decision was clear cut selecting 6 projects which stood head and shoulders above the rest.

The best Urban Design projects for 2009 are:

WAN Urban Design Award 2009 BUILT shortlist

WAN Urban Design Award 2009 UNBUILT shortlist

The winning projects in both the Built and Unbuilt categories will be announced in next week's News Review.

2009 is the inaugural year for the WAN sector awards which have already seen winners in the categories of Education, Healthcare and Civic Buildings. The Commercial sector award is now open for entries with a deadline of 31 October and the Residential sector will open shortly after this date.
