A note from the World Architecture News editor
        

Alison Carter, Editor

"All architecture, and the interiors that lie within, have a vital impact on our lives.  

Despite the current challenges as the world grapples to manage the pandemic, the WAN Awards and the WIN Awards shine a light forward and promote the visions of the creative and outstanding work of innovative and imaginative architects and interior designers worldwide.

The awards are supported by World Architecture News (WAN) and World Interiors News (WIN) which provide a global news platform for architects and designers.  In 2020, the site was regularly viewed by 221 countries worldwide. 

It’s important to amplify and celebrate the positive news in these global sectors and 2020 saw the launch of Female Frontiers, Powered by World Architecture News. This new awards scheme, specifically designed to for women in architecture, is supported by the extremely popular Women Build podcast. Each episode highlights inspirational women in the global architecture arena, asks what’s important to them and points the spotlight on outstanding projects."
