Chinese architect Neri, co-founder of Shanghai studio Neri&Hu, will be judging alongside Paris-based Decq and London-based Brooks.

Neri&Hu are homegrown champions of the rapidly developing Shanghai design scene, while Alison Brooks' Ely Court residential development in London was a finalist for the prestigious Mies van der Rohe Award 2017.

Decq, winner of the Jane Drew Prize 2016, has led the charge of championing women in architecture in the #MeToo era. At last year's Venice Architecture Biennale she led a flashmob demonstration against harassment and discrimination in the industry.

This year's Dezeen Awards judges line-up also includes Rockwell Group founder and president David Rockwell. Founded by Rockwell in New York in 1984, the interdisciplinary practice is currently collaborating architect on Diller Scofidio + Renfro's new project The Shed.

Sitting on this year's interior design panel are Czech-born architect Eva Jiricna, who famously designed all of the interiors for Richard Rogers' hi-tech Lloyds HQ building, and German designer Werner Aisslinger, whose futuristic designs imagine a life of harmony with plants and robots.

British designer Faye Toogood will also be judging interior design categories. Toogood has designed everything from a blood-red installation for luxury fashion brand Hermes to the interiors for Vogue Italia's head offices.
