The IDEA 2021 Institutional, Public Space and Event shortlists are in!
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’ll be announcing all the shortlisted categories this week and next.
Yesterday we shared the shortlisted projects in our biggest and most highly anticipated category – Residential Single.
Tomorrow, we’ll share the Object – Furniture and Lighting categories, followed by the Sustainability, Workplace and Retail categories on Thursday.
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.
