23 February 2024 : Keith Williams joins the 2024 Architecture Today Awards jury panel

Architecture Today have just announced that Keith Williams has been asked to join the high-profile jury panel for the 2024 Architecture Today Awards.

Announcing the awards, Architecture Today states..

“Designed to showcase, celebrate and share knowledge about buildings that have stood the test of time, we only consider projects that have been in use for at least three years and can demonstrate a strong track record for delivering on their environmental, functional, community and cultural ambitions….The high-profile judging panel for the 2024 edition of the AT Awards comprises knowledge and expertise from across the architecture, engineering, environmental services, development, media and government.”

Finalists will present their projects to the jury and a live audience on Wednesday 18 September, 2024.

The AT  judging panel is comprised of many distinguished names and faces including Isabel Allen, Editor, Architecture Today, Amin Taha, Chairman, GROUPWORK, Catherine Burd, director at Burd Haward Architects, Rab Bennetts, Founder, Bennetts Associates, Paul Monaghan, Executive Director, Head of Design Studio Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Cindy Walters, Director, Walters & Cohen Architects, and RIBA presidential candidate Chris Williamson, Founding Partner, Chairman Weston Williamson + Partners.

Keith has a long history of serving on prestigious awards panels, including RIBA Awards, AAI Awards, the Lubetkin Prize, Architects Master Prize and the Civic Trust Awards.  Until he stood down in 2023, Keith had served for 12 years on the National Panel chair on the Civic Trust Awards Panel, and from 2015 – 2023 as the National Panel chair. At more than 60 years old the Civic Trust Awards is Europe’s longest continuous awards programme. By contrast the Architecture Today Awards at just 3 years old is very much the newcomer but has already established a justifiable reputation of excellence.

Keith commented…“I am very much looking forward to the Architecture Today Awards  judging process. It is certainly a privilege to be asked to join in and take part, and I am confident that come September, the judges will see some excellent presentations from entrant finalists and will participate in vigorous debate and discussion when selecting the eventual winners.”
