WAN 21 for 21 Award, 2013
Haptic has been Highly Commended in the World Architecture News (WAN) 21 for 21 Awards; an award intended to forecast the next generation of designers in the 21st century. 158 entries were received this year.
The jury selected the practices that showed an outstanding ability to demonstrate their individual potential to be the next big thing in the architectural world. The jurors in particular were looking for architects whose directional ideas are helping to shape the future of architecture whilst keeping within the boundaries of commercial viability and sustainability.
WAN's editorial stated "The first of the Highly Commended practices is Haptic architects, a UK and Oslo-based practice which caught the judges’ attention with their submitted airport design, as Dennis Ho praised their ‘contextual and site specific’ designs and the organisation of their plans which earned them a Highly Commended status."
