Three projects by Zaha Hadid Architects nominated for Blueprint Awards

The London Aquatics Centre and Heydar Aliyev Center shortlisted in the Best Public Use category; NOVA Shoe in the Best Design Innovation category.

Since opening to the public in March 2014, over 500,000 visitors have used the centre with its many sessions for individuals, families, schools and clubs.

The Heydar Aliyev Centre hosts a variety of cultural programmes including exhibitions, performances and conferences. Its design is a departure from the rigid and often monumental architecture of the former Soviet Union that is so prevalent in Baku, aspiring instead to express the sensibilities of Azeri culture.

The NOVA shoe for United Nude combines innovative materials and engineering with and ergonomic research in a design with no pre-conceptions to create an entirely new form of shoe.

Winning projects will be announced at the Blueprint Awards on October 14.
