About The Dezeen Awards

The Dezeen Awards are Dezeen’s annual awards programme, now in its third year. It identifies the world’s best architecture, interiors and design, as well as the studios and the individual architects and designers producing the most outstanding work. Organised by Dezeen, the world’s most popular and influential architecture and design website, Dezeen Awards is the benchmark for international design excellence and the ultimate accolade for architects and designers everywhere.

Nelly has previously been a judge for the Dezeen Awards, and was involved in the Virtual Design Festival’s Earth Day symposium, which you can watch highlights from (including Nelly’s session with curator and educator Sepake Angiama) here.
