ArchDaily's 2019 Refurbishment in Architecture Awards are Now Open for Nominations

10:00 - 6 May, 2019
ArchDaily's 2019 Refurbishment in Architecture Awards are Now Open for Nominations

In partnership with MINI Clubman, we have launched our second edition of ArchDaily's 2019 Refurbishment in Architecture Awards. This award highlights the best refurbishment projects from around the world.

Alongside MINI, we believe that the recovery and refurbishment of existing structures is one of the most sustainable ways to develop architecture. From reviving abandoned factories to urban renovations and even remodeling centuries-old homes, refurbishment projects demonstrate the flexibility of our existing cities and the many scales at which past buildings can be repurposed.

Similar to our Building of the Year Award, we entrust our readers with the responsibility of rewarding the best refurbishment projects in architecture—the designs that have had an impact on our profession. By voting, you are part of an impartial and distributed network of professionals who act as a jury to choose the most relevant works of the last eight years. Over the next 3 weeks, the collective intelligence of our audience will filter more than 600 projects to select 3 winners representing the best of architecture refurbishment published on ArchDaily.

Under heavy bombing, buildings seem to have only one fate: destruction. Severely damaged during the Spanish Civil War, the 13th-century Gothic Church of Vilanova de la Barca (Lleida, Spain) remained abandoned since 1936.

It was only almost 80 years later that the remnants of the structure – parts of the naves, the west façade and the apse towards the east– went through a restoration and refurbishment process. This time, however, the building was not meant to be used as a church but as a multi-purpose hall.

2019 ArchDaily Building of the Year Awards: The Finalists

2019 has been an unprecedented year for the ArchDaily’s Building of the Year Awards.

As the world’s largest platform for architecture we are acutely aware of our responsibility to the profession, and to the advancement of architecture as a discipline.

By participating in the process, the ArchDaily community decides what it means to push architecture forward. So without further ado, these are the most inspiring building, according to ArchDaily readers.
