Dezeen have announced the architecture shortlist for the first Dezeen Awards, featuring a rammed-earth cricket pavilion in Rwanda, a structure made out of kites in Taiwan and a wooden house in a Norwegian forest.

There are 42 projects across eight categories on the Dezeen Awards architecture shortlist, recognising the best new buildings from all around the world.

Projects were judged according to three criteria, scoring them according to whether they were beautiful, innovative, and beneficial to people and planet.

The winner of each category will be announced in a ceremony on 27 November and all eight winners will go on to compete for the title architecture project of the year – one of nine Ultimate Dezeen Awards.
