Nomos

Winner: Emerging architecture studio of the year 2022. Nomos is a Europe-based architecture and design studio.

The practice works on a variety of architectural scales, from furniture to master planning, and has studios in Geneva, Switzerland, and Madrid, Spain.

Nomos uses drawing as a method to explore ideas and aims to create community-driven buildings that consider cultural and environmental contexts.

Judges' comments: "Nomos's work explores different ways of building for communities. The studio has developed a distinctive body of work – from a social housing project in Geneva to a medical centre in Burkina Fasso – that responds to its context with a playful palette of vibrant colours and interesting materials. The studio creates buildings that have a strong sense of character and identity that reflect the wide range of countries they are working in."
