RIBA launches International Awards 2020
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has opened entries for the third edition of the RIBA International Awards.
Celebrating buildings that exemplify design innovation, embrace sustainable technologies and deliver meaningful social impact, the award recognises 20 architectural projects outside the UK.
The Grand Jury for the awards is led by world-renowned multidisciplinary French architect and urban planner Odile Decq.
In addition to recognising buildings, the awards includes the RIBA International Emerging Architect Prize, which commends the talent of individuals who have been practising for up to 10 years and are making a significant contribution to the field of architecture. The prize is awarded to future pioneers and luminaries of the profession.
The inaugural RIBA International Prize in 2016 was awarded to Grafton Architects for its university building, UTEC (Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología) in Lima, Peru. In 2018, the prize was awarded to Aleph Zero and Rosenbaum, for their inspiring new school complex on the edge of the Amazon rainforest in northern Brazil, Children Village.
