Dezeen Awards 2022 recognizes cabin by Assoc. Prof. Paul Kariouk’s firm

August 30, 2022

A cantilevered lakeside cabin by Associate Professor Paul Kariouk’s firm, Kariouk Architects, is on the architecture longlist for Dezeen Awards 2022. 


The m.o.r.e Cabin, outside La Pêche, Québec, was selected from over 5,400 entries from 90 countries.  


The 322 longlisted buildings, which are in the running for awards in the 12 architecture project categories, were designed by studios from 48 countries, including Peru, New Zealand, Germany, Mexico, Belgium, and Japan. 


Kariouk’s project is longlisted in two architecture categories: rural house, which features 32 entries, and small building, with 29 entries. 

The cottage touches the land lightly in both its structure and its environmental impact. It achieves its goals through several structural and process innovations. The design employs seven ways, that address carbon emissions, construction materials, and processes, to preserve the existing watershed and habitat. 


According to Dezeen, its awards program “celebrates the world’s best architecture, interiors, and design as well as studios and individuals producing the most outstanding work.” 


A panel of judges will decide which projects will be shortlisted and, ultimately the winner in each category. Shortlists will be announced from September 5 to 9, and winners will be revealed in November. 


In addition, a public vote will open in September to allow readers to vote for their favourite projects and studios.
