We are delighted to announce the judges so far who will be assessing entries to this year’s WAN AWARDS 2017.
McBride Charles Ryan - Colour in Architecture 2016 Winner
"Winning the WAN AWARD affirms McBride Charles Ryan's dedication and commitment to architecture. Receiving worldwide recognition from the jurors is truly exciting and has invigorated our team to continue to innovate. MCR particularly revelled in Zlatco’s praise regarding `the accurate response of the design to its context as a school building combining the serious with the playful’. MCR thought this was an insightful comment that related directly to some of our core values. Karen’s response that we ‘are an architectural firm looking to bring colour to the beginning of the design and not the end’ further resonated with MCR’s holistic approach to architecture."
Debbie-Lyn Ryan, Owner of McBride Charles Ryan
