Chief Architect of Moscow to be in the Jury of WAN Award 2017

30 January 2017

Sergey Kuznetsov, Chief Architect of Moscow and Deputy Head of the Moscow Architecture and Urban Planning Committee, will be a jury member at the award panel for the World Architecture News WAN Performing Spaces Award 2017.

The WAN Performing Spaces Award 2017 showcases excellence in design in the demanding sector of Performing Spaces, whether an opera house, theatre, concert hall or other live performance space. The award has been established to celebrate and promote the best in international architecture for performing arts venues, attracting entries from all over the world and providing a global platform to showcase your designs.

The opportunity to design a performing space has always been one of the most sought after commissions for an architect. However, the process of creating a space that engages, enthuses and excites is a complex but ultimately rewarding one. A building that can enrich the experience for performer, audience and technician should also celebrate the architect, consultant and acoustician.

The winning and shortlisted entrants all receive dedicated press kits and their projects will be featured in a special edition of News Review which reaches over 160,000 property developers, architects, consultants and organisations in countries around the world.

The winning, shortlisted and commended entrants receive an award certificate and their project makes headline news on WAN.

Applicants will be featured permanently on the WAN AWARDS’ website and social media platforms, being seen by a large number of industry professionals. This includes Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.

The judges will assess projects on a number of factors to get to the short list including; Originality, Innovation, Form, Function, Sustainability and Context. The shortlisted projects will then be tested to see whether design has addressed the key elements of the client brief and/or used design to evolve or push the boundaries of this specific typology and will look for specific examples of how building has enhanced the learning environment.

A long list of around twenty five projects will initially be selected, but the total figure will depend entirely on the final amount of entries submitted by the closing date. Further details of these projects will then be requested, including plans, sections, elevations and more technical information. From the long list, a short list of six projects will be selected before an overall winner is chosen.
