Judges of the competition, the UK’s premier award scheme for wood in buildings and furniture, are now tasked with selecting just 10% of the projects to create a 30-strong shortlist.

"The diversity of this year’s entries demonstrates the range of flexibility and problem solving which timber brings," said chairman of the judges, Michael Morrison, of architect Purcell UK.

The shortlist will be announced in August and showcased for the first time at 100% Design in London on September 18-21 and again at Timber Expo at Birmingham NEC on September 24-25.
