The WAN Transport in Architecture Award seeks to identify and reward ideas that enhance movement and access. Whether large or small, we're celebrating designs across the whole transport spectrum, from train stations to transit hubs, airports to seaports, and parking structures to pedestrian schemes.

We are looking for transportation systems that reimagine the way in which we move within and experience the built environment.

Assessing the entries will be a panel of world-class experts, all of whom are committed to advancing ideas and practice within transport. Award success guarantees increased exposure of your work to a wider global audience and potential new clients and connections.

Judging Criteria

The judges will use their experience in the sector to assess your project on a number of factors to get to the short list including; Originality, Innovation, Form, Function, Sustainability and Context.

The shortlisted projects will then be tested to see whether your design has:

  • Addressed any key challenges within the client brief
  • Pushed the accepted boundaries for this building type

Presentation is also of great importance, and judges will be looking for your ability to communicate the 'story' of your building, from the initial concept through to its completion.


The competition is open to all projects built during the last three full calendar years, on or after 01 January 2015.
