Archiboo launches 2018 Archiboo Web Awards

5 June, 2018

Archiboo is inviting entries for the Archiboo Web Awards 2108 celebrating architects and their collaborators who best use online to communicate great architecture.

Last year’s Best Overall Experience Award was won by David Miller Architects. Other previous winners included Mae, IF_DO and Sarah Wigglesworth Architetcs.

 

SWA’s website won Best Visual Design. The website was designed by Burgess & Beech.

 

As in previous years, our 30 judges are experts and influencers drawn from different fields – media, property, engineering, design and tech- with a wide range of inside and outside perspectives.

This year’s judges will be joined by former Culture and Digital Minister Ed Vaizey; director of Open City Rory Olycato; Sadie Morgan, a founding director of dRMM and Marcus Fairs, founder and editor-in-chief of Dezeen.

The categories are Best Use of Innovation, Best Use of Digital Imagery, Best Use of Video, Best Use of Technology, Best Use of Social Media, Best Written Content, Best Visual Design, Best Home Page and the Best Overall Experience Award.

The new award for 2018 is Best Mobile Experience, sponsored by Adrem, to reflect how mobile usage has now overtaken desktop browsing.

The Best Overall Experience Award, sponsored by Arup is open to entrants who enter two or more awards.

David Miller, whose practice David Miller Architects won the Best Overall Award in 2017 said: “Winning the Best Overall had an immediate impact on the practice. The analytics from before and after the awards prove this way beyond our expectations”.

DMA won Best Overall Award and Best Use of Technology

Archiboo founder Amanda Baillieu said: “Last year’s finalists demonstrated just how much the Internet is helping change the way we talk about architecture. Having a powerful online presence is not simply good business but it’s the best way for the architects and their collaborators to stay relevant, open and engaged”.

The deadline for entries is July 6, 2018, with the shortlist to be revealed in late July and the winners announced at a ceremony in mid-September during the London Design Festival.

Last year the awards attracted over 250 entries from studios around the world. The ceremony was held at White Collar Factory on London’s Old Street designed by AHMM
