SMA selected for the WAN Awards 2017

SMA’s Massimo Dutti store design enters the initial selection for the international WAN Awards in the categories “Commercial” and “Façade,” alongside significant examples of recent architecture from around the world.

The World Architecture News Awards is one of the largest awards programs in the world for international architecture. In particular, the Commercial category celebrates innovation and new directions in commercial architecture, while the Façade category focuses on the new and pioneering use and application of façades and new technologies that take this architectural element to new places.

The Massimo Dutti flagship store in Mexico City has been preselected and is on the longlist in both categories. The projects chosen at this stage will pass to the next phase according to their scores on a number of criteria such as originality, innovation, form, function, sustainability and context.

Following the decision of the specialist jury in each category, on September 19 the finalists in each of the 22 categories will be announced. Finally, in December this year, after each finalist has the opportunity to present their project in person, the winners will be named.
