Welcome to the December edition of RIBA International

In this issue we feature several international architectural competitions focusing on the different arenas of innovation, renovation and sustainability. We look at the RIBA Exhibitions encompassing architecture worldwide from the Palladian US journey to the modern European work of Adolf Loos; as well as showcasing the winners of the Architectural Review Awards, The President's Medals and Royal Gold Medal.

Further overseas we also look at UKTI’s seminar on sustainable construction and education in Saudi Arabia, the creative sector trade in China and reports on RIBA-USA
