Structural Awards 2021: shortlist announced


Established in 1968, the Structural Awards are the world's leading awards for structural engineering excellence.

The 2021 shortlist presents some of the best engineering projects the world has to offer from the past two years. 

A message from Prof Tim Ibell, Chair of the Structural Awards Judging Panel:

"The sense of pride for our profession which the Structural Awards always generates is alive and kicking in 2021, despite the pandemic. What a fantastic two-year bumper crop of shortlisted projects.

Many projects this year already demonstrate wonderful sustainability-related innovations, which are fabulous to see. The need for sustainable design will grow in judging priorities over the coming years, as we all grapple with the exciting challenge to reduce our carbon footprint. This year’s shortlist reflects the very first steps in this move, and provides inspiration for so many, as always."
