Renowned practices including Steven Holl Architects, Mikhail Riches, AECOM, WilkinsonEyre and Chris Dyson Architects are among those shortlisted for 2020 Surface Design Awards, which exemplify creative use of surface materials and lighting.

Demonstrating the truly international reach of the awards, now in their sixth year, projects on the shortlist spanned 13 countries from 34 different organisations with emerging practices represented, as well as established firms. UK-based studios led the way with 14 finalists and those from China, India and the US all having strong showings in multiple categories.

The Light of City scheme in China by Kris Lin International Design was highlighted in the Commercial Building Exterior category, with judge Amin Taha describing it as a “perfectly symmetrical, well resolved piece of architecture.” Meanwhile architect Charles Holland praised the Kingdom Design Studio by Eric Corbett, which is shortlisted for best Commercial Building Interior stating that it, “celebrates the difference between the materials with a controlled sensibility.”
