ABA longlisted for Architect of the Year at Dezeen Awards 2020

We are extremely happy to have been longlisted for Dezeen Awards 2020, Architect of the Year. In its third year, the Dezeen Awards honours the best of architecture and design from across the world, and we are honoured to have been considered for this year’s awards.


Despite Covid 19 restrictions, it has been a great year for ABA. We have won major new housing projects by design competition in Stratford, Hackney and Moscow, and have gained city permits for our largest project to date for a mixed use city block in Vancouver. The first phase of our work in Eddington reached completion, and we continue to develop detailed design proposals for a second project for this innovative new sustainable town extension in Cambridge. Meanwhile detailed design for Cadence in King’s Cross has continued after ABA were novated to Laing O’Rourke, and 1 Ashley Road has started construction. Work continues on York Castle Museum, a project that we won at competition last year, and we recently made the longlist to design the new Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.

We wish all the other fantastic studios on this year’s longlist the best of luck with the award.
