Andrea Leers and Jane Weinzapfel have been jointly shortlisted for Architectural Review’s Women in Architecture, 2017 Architect of the Year Award. This annual award recognizes excellence in design with an emphasis on a built project completed in 2016.
Christine Murray, founder of the Women in Architecture Awards and editor-in-chief of The Architectural Review and The Architects’ Journal, said about the shortlists:
“These women architects are creating some of the most innovative and creative design work in the world today. It is a privilege to celebrate work from a broad range of countries – showing how great design touches all our lives.”
Leers and Weinzapfel were recognized for their work on the Ohio State University East Regional Chilled Water Plant. Of the project, the jury noted “The project is an elegant approach to a functional building which uses perforated aluminium panels to achieve a refined aesthetic”.
The winners of the prestigious awards will be announced at the AJ/AR Women in Architecture Luncheon at Claridge’s on 3 March.
