Architects' Choice

Sponsored by Ibstock Brick


No shortlist is announced for the Architects' Choice category as the winner is voted for from the selection of shortlisted projects in other categories. Projects may not be entered directly into this category.

We will open this category shortly after shortlists are announced, for finalists’ peers to appraise projects and by voting, contribute directly to the UK’s celebration of exemplary brick architecture.

Only projects shortlisted in 2018 may be voted for.
