Dezeen has announced 93 projects that have been longlisted for this year’s Dezeen Awards in the sustainability categories, including projects by Universal Design Studio, Foster + Partners, Blonde and Fletcher Priest Architects.

The 93 longlisted projects, competing for awards in six different sustainability project categories, are from studios located in 28 different countries including Peru, Taiwan, Austria, Israel, Norway and Germany.

The top three countries represented in the studio are the United Kingdom, with 30 longlisted entries, followed by the United States and the Netherlands, who are tied with six entries each.

Among the long lists for sustainability are a low-carbon community arts space in Uganda, a large wooden office building in London, and a redeveloped Brutalist apartment block in Sheffield.

Other projects on the long list include a biomaterial building block made from a byproduct of sugarcane, an apartment building wrapped with columns of tree trunks, and a collection of colorful roof tiles made from waste paper.

All the 2023 Dezeen Awards longlists were revealed this week

The Dezeen Awards 2023, in partnership with Bentley Motors, revealed all the longlisted projects this week. The longlistings for architecture, interiors and design were announced earlier this week.

The longlisted projects were selected from more than 4,800 entries from 94 countries for the sixth edition of our awards programme, which celebrates the world’s best architecture, interiors and design, as well as the studios and individuals producing the most outstanding work.

The next phase of the Dezeen Awards 2023 will see all longlisted projects evaluated by an international jury made up of leading professionals including architects Chitra Vishwanath and Koichi Takada, and designers Maurizio Montalti and Piet Hein Eek.

Judges will determine which projects will be shortlisted, which will be announced in October. Another round of judging will be conducted by our main jury to determine the winners, which will be announced in November.

The six winners in the sustainable project categories will compete to be crowned the overall sustainable project of the year.
