Showcasing the best

The Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) has revealed the 2021 Structural Awards Shortlist, featuring 53 outstanding projects worldwide, including The All England Lawn Tennis Club No.1 Court Redevelopment, UK, the Oregon Forest Science Complex, USA, and the Tiayuan Botanical Garden Domes, China


Following a Covid-induced hiatus in 2020, the hotly anticipated 2021 programme returns bigger than ever, with a brace of new categories. Significantly, this iteration covers a two year period. As such, the judges had a more difficult time than ever with double the amount of entries to consider.

Encompassing a wide range of structural disciplines, each of the 13 categories highlights the prolific work of structural engineers globally, and the role they play as the ‘Guardians of public safety in the built environment’.

Aside from placing a spotlight on professional excellence, the 2021 Awards has put sustainability at the heart of the judging process, plus shortlisted entries were also selected for excellence, creativity and inventiveness, as well as elegance and detailing.

The winner will be announced at a gala awards dinner and ceremony, taking place on 5th November 2021 at The Brewery, London.
