On the evening of Thursday, June 7, we’ll announce the winners of the 2012 AZ AWARDS, live from the Thompson Hotel. Follow the Twitter hashtag #AZAWARDS12 for a play by play of the celebration.
From an impressive 621 submissions, the winners of Azure‘s second international competition celebrating excellence in design and architecture were selected by our esteemed jury. It was made up of landscape architect Imola Bérczi of UNStudio; Jeffrey Bernett of Consultants for Design Strategy; Elaine Cecconi of Cecconi Simone; Jennifer Guthrie of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol; Mike Keilhauer of Keilhauer; and Brigitte Shim of Shim-Sutcliffe Architects.
The gala, held at Thompson Hotel, will honour the finalists, the jury-selected winners, and the winners of the People’s Choice award, chosen by the public in an online vote. Together, they represent the best in furniture, lighting, architecture, interiors and landscapes from around the world. Also included are visionary concepts, striking temporary spaces and extraordinary student work. All finalist projects and products are featured in Azure‘s annual awards issue on newsstands this month.
