Urbanism Awards Shortlist Announced for 2015

The Academy is delighted to announce the 2015 Urbanism Awards shortlist, following an intensive workshop session held with Academicians on Wednesday 23 April 2014.

These 50 places will now be voted on by Academicians to determine three finalists from each category that will progress to the next stage.
