The judging panel was chaired by Paul Finch, the Editor of The Architectural Review, and included regular contributors Gordon Talbot of Ian Ritchie Architects, Craig Casci of Hamilton Associates and Laurence Bain of Bain & Bevington Architects. The judges were joined for the first time by Ken Shuttleworth of Make Architects and the winner of the last European Award Kari Jarvinen of Kari Jarvinen Ja Merja Nieminen from Finland.
Although this is only the second time that a European category has been included, the judges were struck by the breadth and design quality of entries. They settled on six shortlisted projects from the 31 European entries, leading to four closely contested Awards. Separately from the European category, the Copper in Architecture Awards continue to recognise the best UK projects, this year with five very different buildings shortlisted from the 43 entries.
