Judging the WAN Awards for the Social Housing category was a great experience. It was interesting to see the international scope of submissions, and the architectural innovation and excellence that some of the projects demonstrated. The subject of housing is crucial for today’s society, and it was great to see such a diverse range of solutions to supply the current demand, ranging from individual apartments to high rise towers to the creation of new communities." Jean-Christophe Masson, Co-founder, Hamonic+Masson & Associés

"The genuinely global nature of these awards is what intrigued me to join the jury, however the extraordinary quality of the projects on show, both temporary and permanent, made this an absolutely incredible process to be a part of. The Small Spaces category in particular, was characterised, perhaps not surprisingly, by simple ideas extrapolated out to a sophisticated conclusion marrying form and function. All of the shortlisted designers have both my admiration and congratulations." Russ Edwards, Design & Technical Director, lendlease

"It is always a privilege to participate as a Juror in major awards programmes, particularly of the quality and international breadth of the WAN Awards. The range of entries in the Bridges category was impressive, from the enormous to the modest, yet all demonstrated architectural ambition and a passion for the art of bridge design. The submissions were concise and highly informative and they beautifully represented the architectural qualities of the work, ensuring the process of judging was well informed, rigorous and robust." Martin Knight, Director, Knight Architects

"Since winning the Small Spaces - Temporary WAN AWARD, we have been overwhelmed with attention for Wheel Pad. The jury comments demonstrated the depth of the jury as well as their care in truly evaluating a project. Never have our architectural intentions been so clearly seen and described so succinctly. Furthermore, the jury comments are proving extremely helpful in our marketing efforts. We are installing our prototype in Putney, Vermont, this week. Thank you for your role in moving Wheel Pad L3C from concept toward launch." Joseph Cincotta, Architect and Julie Lineberger, CEO
