Each of the shortlisted projects will also be judged by an expert panel against seven key criteria - context, including local distinctiveness, quality of design and construction, fitness for purpose, sustainability, accessibility, attractiveness and innovation.

Voting for the People's Choice award will be open until Sunday November 24 with the winning projects announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday December 5.
