RIBA 2021 Global Architecture photography competition winners livestream with Iwan Baan

Hear from leading architecture photographer Iwan Baan and the four top winners from the RIBA 2021 Global Architecture photography competition.

The RIBA 2021 Global Architecture photography competition was launched to create a global portrait of the built environment with respect to sustainability. From 147 entries, four top winners were chosen, one from each of the RIBA International regions, all of whom will join the event to talk about their images, why they captured their imagination and their insights on sustainability in architecture.

We will take an in-depth look at each of the winning images and hear from Iwan Baan, Head Judge, about his outstanding portfolio of work and how to create memorable and impactful architectural photos.

The session is chaired by Director of RIBA International, Azlina Bulmer and will be followed by an audience Q&A.
