The IDEA 2022 shortlist reveal continues today with the Sustainability category.
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 projects shortlisted in the different categories over the next few weeks.
Previously we shared the shortlisted projects in our biggest and most highly anticipated category – Residential Single – followed by Institutional, Public Space, Events, Object – Furniture and Lighting, Retail and Workplace, and now it’s time to reveal the best projects in the Sustainability category.
The shortlisted projects in this specialised category were selected by the IDEA Sustainability judge for 2002 – BVN regenerative practice lead Valerie Saavedra Lux, who is responsible for overseeing, judging and selecting the winner from the projects entered in the 2022 program.
Along with all the other category winners selected by our judges – Eva Sue, Nina Maya, Yasmine Ghoniem, Alexander Lotersztain, William Smart, Pascale Gomes-McNabb and Sarah-Jane Pyke – the Sustainability winner will be announced at the always highly-anticipated IDEA Gala in late November.
