ADDAWARDS.RU 2023: Season Starts!

The International Independent Award for Architects, Designers and Developers opens its IX season on March 15th. This year we are even more emphasizing the importance of the completed projects and launching new main nominations.

Main Nominations

Taking into account the experience of past seasons, the participants’ wishes and the experts and jury members’ recommendations, in the IX season of the Award, the composition of the main nominations is changing. The changes will make it possible to specify the nominations, simplify the evaluation of equivalent works and make it even more objective, as well as expand the possibilities for submitting projects.

The key nominations, which traditionally include a large number of works, will be divided into subcategories: business, premium and luxury. The HoReCa nomination is being transformed into two independent nominations "Hotels" and "Restaurants & Cafes", reflecting different approaches to organizing spaces and creating design concepts. The same principle is laid down in the allocation of other independent nominations: "Landscape Design" (private gardening and landscaping projects), "Urban Environment" (public spaces and urban projects), "Retail" (showrooms, boutiques, salons, shopping centers, entertainment complexes), "Business Interiors" (business centers, offices, co-working spaces, work areas).

Concidering the number of submitted works in previous seasons, the importance and specifics of design, the Organizing Committee decided to allocate a new main nomination "Beauty & Health Industry", which will include completed and conceptual projects of medical centers, beauty salons, SPA and sports complexes, fitness centers.

The company accepts visualizations and completed projects that reflect modern design with a minimal set of decor and details, but at the same time stylish and comfortable, with original planning solutions.

The Russian manufacturer of kitchens "according to the Italian recipe" Ziti Сucine launches a special nomination "Kitchen as a space of innovations and unique solutions". The visualizations and completed projects of neoclassical and modern kitchens should demonstrate original solutions in construction and design.

The Russian furniture manufacturer TOK invites you to take part in the competition "The Best Interior with TOK Furniture". Conceptual and completed projects are accepted for the competition, and a project that includes at least two pieces of TOK furniture can claim the first place.

The website of the Award will host the All-Russian competition for young designers and architects "The Space", which was established by the development group of companies "Garden Ring". The contest participants will have the opportunity to develop design projects for one of the developer's residential complexes in Ufa and Krasnogorsk. Applications for participation are accepted until May 15.
