About the award
Façades are arguably one of the most important elements in today’s commercial buildings. Not only do they often cost more than the structural frame, they define modern buildings in terms of architecture and environmental performance and are at the forefront of advances in technology. It is one of the few major building components that have yet to fully evolve. Where façades can sometimes make the most impact is in retro fitting to tired old structures, where they can actually tip the scales between demolition and refurbishment.
This award will highlight innovative use of façades and showcase the new technologies that continue to take this transformational building element into new realms.
The WAN AWARDS Façades category is a major international competition that celebrates and promotes the best in architectural façades, attracting entries from all over the world and providing a global platform to showcase your designs.
