Levete, RSHP and Heatherwick among 62 in running for RIBA global prize

  • Comment

Schemes by Amanda Levete, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP), John McAslan and Heatherwick Studio have been named on the longlist for the RIBA International Prize 2018

The institute has named 62 projects in the running for the biennial accolade, which is being billed as ’the world’s most prestigious award for architecture’.

Among the schemes longlisted include RSHP’s 8 Chifley Square scheme in Sydney and its BBVA Bancomer Tower Mexico City designed with Legorreta + Legorreta.

Amanda Levete Architects’ Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) in Lisbon and both John McAslan + Partners’ Kericho Cathedral and the practice’s Msheireb Museums in Doha made the cut.

As did Heatherwick Studio’s Zeitz MOCAA art gallery in Cape Town, South Africa, the Bremer Landesbank Headquarters by Caruso St John Architects, AHMM’s University of Amsterdam and Sergison Bates’ Welcome Centre and office building in Shanghai.

Speaking about the RIBA International List 2018, RIBA President, Ben Derbyshire said: ’[This longlist] shines a light on the world’s best new buildings and most impressive architectural talent.

’Most importantly, this significant selection of 62 projects illustrates the meaningful impact and transformative quality that well-designed buildings can have on communities, wherever they are in the world.’

The shortlist for the 2018 RIBA International Prize will be selected from these projects next with the eventual winner announced in December 2018.

 The Grand Jury will be led by world-renowned architect, Elizabeth Diller of Diller Scofidio and Renfro.
