The World Architecture Festival has named the eight finalists for its 2021 Timber Prize. Check them out above.

The competition, which aims to showcase and reward oustanding wooden construction around the world, saw entrants from 13 countries and 28 different architecture firms and project teams.

"Sustainable timber construction is making a big impression on architecture and design across the world, and we are delighted at the interest the prize has generated among practices entering the WAF Awards," says Paul Finch, Program Director of WAF. "Judging will be tough, given the wide range of geographies and building types that have made the shortlist. We look forward to celebrating the winner at the Festival in Lisbon."

The winner will be named in December.
