|Icon 115: The Awards Issue|
This very special edition celebrates the inaugural Icon Awards. 2013 is the magazine’s 10thanniversary and, to mark this, we thought it the right time to launch an annual prize for the best international architecture, design, technology and culture of the past year.
We are grateful to our distinguished judges – Alice Rawsthorn, Edwin Heathcote, Kieran Long, Libby Sellers and Ab Rogers – for giving up their time to the tricky task of whittling down a shortlist of five and selecting a winner for each of the ten categories.
