W Awards



Formerly known as the Women in Architecture awards

The W Awards recognise women’s global contribution to the profession, promoting role models for young women in practice and encouraging respect, diversity and equality in architecture: from lifetimes of achievement to the work of women with bright futures ahead, from the design of the world’s most significant new buildings to contributions to wider architectural culture. In partnership with both The Architectural Review and the Architects’ Journal, the W Awards are a celebration of talent and ambition, of leadership and outstanding architecture.

Previous winners and finalists include Sheila O’Donnell, Gloria Cabral, Madelon Vriesendorp, Rachel Whiteread, Jeanne Gang, Ilze Wolff, Lina Ghotmeh, Rozana Montiel, Elizabeth Diller, Sandra Barclay, Hélène Binet, and many more.

Join us for lunch as we announce the winners and hear keynote speeches from the inspirational recipients of this year’s prestigious Jane Drew and Ada Louise Huxtable Prizes at the Battersea Arts Centre London on Friday 6 March 2020.
