Winners of 2018 MIPIM/AR Future Project awards announced

Spanning 12 categories, the Future Project awards celebrates excellence in unbuilt and incomplete projects

The successful schemes in MIPIM’s premier architectural event encompass diverse projects that are under construction or currently in planning, through to competition entries and impressive conceptual designs.

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill have won the overall prize in this year’s MIPIM/AR Future Project Awards for their Shanghai Old Town Master Plan project. It also won the Regeneration and Masterplanning category.

Combined, the winners and all the finalists in this year’s AR Future Project Awards have showcased examples of innovative and outstanding architecture that have successfully responded to the development brief and have also taken into consideration the full impact and contribution they will make to the communities around them.

Jury chair and AR editorial director Paul Finch commented; ‘This was a great year for the awards, with more than 280 entries. The commended and winning entries show a high degree of skill and innovation.’
