The MIPIM Awards 2018 finalists have been chosen. The 12-member jury have selected 44 projects from 23 countries that now go forward to the finals of the international real estate industry’s premier awards.
The jury, chaired this year by Méka Brunel, CEO of Gecina, reviewed the 227 entries from a record of 55 countries and shortlisted the top four projects in each of the 11 competition categories.
“This year we saw a real upscale of the projects in line with the MIPIM theme “mapping world urbanity”. Beyond their architectural qualities, these projects are making a new step towards connections between people in the cities. Innovation and environmental qualities are combined with beautiful design and thoughtful projects. It’s a real pleasure to see so many applicants from all over the world deploying their talents towards the same high standard purpose,” explains Méka Brunel.
The winners will be announced at the MIPIM Awards ceremony on Thursday, 15 March at 6.30pm in the Grand Auditorium of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes.
The winners will be selected by both MIPIM delegates voting in Cannes for projects of their choice and by the jury. The winners will be selected on a 50:50 basis combining delegates’ votes cast on-site and the jury’s own votes.
