Schemes by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP), AHMM and Stanton Williams are among 20 to win RIBA International Excellence 2018 awards
The schemes were chosen from a longlist of 62 projects from around the world, which were revealed last December. The winners effectively create the mid-list for the institute’s prestigious global gong, the 2018 RIBA International Prize.
However, there was no place on the list for Amanda Levete Architects, John McAslan + Partners, SimpsonHaugh & Partners, Zaha Hadid Architects, Caruso St John, Sergison Bates, Heneghan Peng and Heatherwick Studio.
RSHP bagged its RIBA International Excellence accolade for the BBVA Bancomer Tower in Mexico City - a project delivered in collaboration with Legorreta + Legorreta.
Stanton Williams was rewarded for its work on Musée d’arts de Nantes in France and Allford Hall Monaghan Morris for its University of Amsterdam project.
Speaking about the RIBA Awards for International Excellence 2018, RIBA president Ben Derbyshire, said: ‘[These awards] are a testament to the breadth and quality of architecture being created around the world.
‘These 20 outstanding projects were selected for their architectural ambition, design ingenuity and excellence of execution. Importantly, they demonstrate the significant and far-reaching contribution that architecture makes to our daily lives.’
The first RIBA International Prize was awarded in 2016 to Grafton Architects – curator of this year’s International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale – for its university building, UTEC (Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología) in Lima, Peru.
The shortlist for the 2018 RIBA International Prize will be selected from these 20 projects 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.
