Projects may not be entered directly into this category.
Rather, once the shortlist has been announced, the Architects’ Choice category is an opportunity for finalists’ peers to appraise shortlisted projects and by voting, contribute directly to the UK’s celebration of exemplary brick architecture.
Practicing Architects and students of Architecture may vote in the Architects’ Choice competition.
Only projects in domestic, architecturally-focused categories are eligible for the Architects’ Choice. The project that receives the most independent votes, wins.
This year the Architects' Choice Award is sponsored by Ibstock Brick.
Ibstock Brick is the leading manufacturer by volume of clay bricks sold in the UK and continues to drive the brick industry forward through design, innovation, quality and range.
With an unrivalled choice of more than 450 different bricks, including special shapes and pre-fabricated solutions, it supplies the new build, repair, maintenance and improvement (RMI) and commercial markets.
To meet the increasing popularity of brick, Ibstock Brick has invested £54 million in a state-of-the-art- factory at Ibstock, Leicestershire - the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly factory of its type.
