Now in its eighth year, the annual prize rewards the best in architecture, digital, fashion, furniture, graphic, product and transport design
Among the 76 nominated projects for 2015 are an off-grid eco toilet, microchips that mimic human organs, a campaign promoting ugly vegetables and a book printed without ink.
A strong theme for this year is the desire to harness new technologies to solve long-standing problems; from the world’s first lab for 3D printing prosthetic limbs, to a sensor which connects to a cow’s tail and texts the farmer when calving is imminent. The jury includes sculptural artist and designer of the Olympic tower, Anish Kapoor, and eminent architect and Harvard professor, Farshid Moussavi.
The exhibition of nominees is a chance to see high profile projects – such as Google’s self-driving car and Asif Kahn’s Sochi Olympic Megafaces – alongside rising stars and little known practices.
