Restaurants and bars offer architects and interior designers the opportunity to design for both style and entertainment. Aesthetics and function must come together to create ambiance and conviviality in a way that not only makes a bold first impression, but also secures a loyal following of regular customers.
Divided into five chapters—Americas, Asia, Australia, Europe, and Middle East—the book features 100 highlights from the establishments put forward to the panel. Texts include chapter introductions by experts and judges such as Tony Chambers (editor-in-chief of Wallpaper*) anddesigner Karim Rashid, and a preface by the author and founder of the awards, Marco Rebora.

Entries include:
  • Numerous photographs
  • A fact sheet of location, architect/designer, cost, and size of build for each project
  • A text describing the original briefing, the challenges involved, and their solutions
  • Information about the architect and designer
