The MADE20 awards are open for entries. MADE20 is a different type of award. It is a celebration of projects which have been built within the last 5 years, that demonstrate good design and forward thinking ideas. Out of the entries 20 schemes will be chosen which show the potential for high quality design to transform the built environment in our region.
We want to showcase architecture, urban design and landscape architecture in the West Midlands, and while some of our winners will inevitably be from established firms in the region and beyond, we also want to highlight new and emerging design talent; the ‘ones to watch’.
What we are looking for:
We want MADE20 to only feature projects that have been completed in the West Midlands within the last 5 years. Whether the submission is a single bespoke dwelling, a new housing estate, a retail or office development, a converted listed building or a new public space, if you feel it has contributed to the quality of the built environment we’d like to hear from you. We are looking for schemes designed for the West Midlands; the client and design team can be from anywhere in the world.
There will be no overall winner. Our judges will select twenty projects that are exemplars for transforming the region and should be awarded recognition for the quality of their design. Submissions can be made by architects, clients, local authorities or anyone involved. Student projects and speculative designs are not accepted.
What to submit:
Tell us why you think your project should be selected. All submissions are to be sent in PDF or JPEG format. Initially we require details of your project including basic information such as:
Size of project (Plan, Floor Space, Land Area)
Written statement of why you think, the project should be one of the MADE20 (max 500 words)
Submission deadline is 31st October 2012. Email your entries to David Tittle. The judging panel will meet shortly after that. If your scheme is selected we will ask you to submit, at your own expense, an A1 board about the scheme. Other than this, it will not cost you anything to enter a scheme for the MADE20 Awards.
MADE20 is being supported by the MADE GRADS group.
