The International Union of Architects announces the launch of the WAN AWARDS, devoted to completed or un-built commercial buildings. This award honours all types of facilities in this sector — offices, banks, hotel, cultural and leisure complexes, commercial centres — be they completed or as yet un-built, realised or designed over the last three years (after 1st January 2007). Deadline for submission is 31 October 2010.
Miguel Ruano will represent UIA on the jury for this session of the Awards.
