The first week of the IDEA 2021 shortlist reveal ends with the Colour, Hospitality and International categories.
All shortlisted projects are listed below, each with a link to a dedicated page on the IDEA website where you can find more images and information about each project.
We announced almost all the shortlisted categories this week and will be continuing with the final few next week.
Yesterday we shared the shortlisted projects in our Retail, Workplace and Sustainability categories.
We’ll be back on Monday 27 September with the final two residential categories.
Shortlisted projects were selected by our editorial team. A further round of judging by our judges David Flack, Jean-Paul Ghougassian, Meryl Hare, Domino Risch, Chelsea Hing, Ryan Genesin and Brahman Perera will determine the category winners, which will be announced in late November.
