"I will be looking for the unexpected" says Dezeen Awards judge Vladimir Radutny

There are only four days left to enter Dezeen Awards 2020. To help you with your entry, we've asked some of our judges what they’ll be looking for in this year's submissions.

"I will be looking for the unexpected, something that will make me pause to evaluate the intent and the outcome deeper than the image," said architect Vladimir Radutny.

"For work that is not part of the trend that has dominated the internet, but for something that is specific to a place, something that is personal and honest," he added.

Radutny's studio won the apartment interior of the year award with their project Michigan Loft at Dezeen Awards 2019.

This year Radutny has agreed to judge the interiors categories along with Joyce Wang, Rafael de Cardenas, Paola Navone and Pierre Yovanovitch.

"I've been seeing more projects focusing on refined craftsmanship, restraint in material use and uniformity as an outcome in building exterior and interiors," explained Radutny.

"I am expecting to see more projects with this cohesive approach."

Vladimir Radutny founded his own studio in 2008. Based in Chicago, it focuses on innovative design solutions that challenge the conventional interpretations of space, function and materials.

Completed projects include the Michigan Loft apartment, a Chicago law office and the renovation of a Lake Shore Drive apartment.

Radutny strongly believes in architecture as an art form with the capacity to not just alter space, but to change perceptions, feelings and habits.
