Our global architecture awards champion buildings that change the world.
We have announced 16 exceptional projects which have been awarded RIBA International Awards for Excellence 2021.
These projects from 11 countries, ranging from large urban masterplans and infrastructure schemes, cultural centres, hospitals and memorials to private residencies, form the longlist for the RIBA International Prize 2021.
RIBA President Alan Jones said: “The 2021 RIBA International Awards for Excellence are presented to an ambitious and diverse range of projects from a wide range of established and upcoming architects’ practices. It is particularly important to be considering excellence in architecture at this time - in this fast-changing world, where governments, clients and society need the skills and insight of architects.
"Our global awards show how well-considered, well-delivered and well-performing architecture has the immense potential to improve lives and communities. We are very pleased to be able to celebrate some of the most innovative, ingenious and impactful architecture in the world – designed by some of the most talented architects of our time.”
The shortlist for the RIBA International Prize 2021 will be announced in September. The winner will be named in November, along with the winner of the RIBA International Emerging Architect Prize.
