Residential projects, landmark buildings and educational work all have a strong presence in the shortlist for the New Zealand Architecture Awards programme for 2015, announced on 30 July. There will be forty-six projects in the running to take home a coveted New Zealand Architecture Award.

The Awards jury convenor, Auckland architect Pete Bossley, commented that “the range and quality of the projects on the shortlist is impressive and inspiring. It was tough enough deciding what to leave off the shortlist, and it won’t be easy choosing the buildings that will get a New Zealand Architecture Award.”

Pete Bossley’s jury, which includes Nelson architect Jeremy Smith, Wellington architect Sharon Jansen, and Queensland architect Damien Eckersley, will visit the shortlisted projects in August.
