The 2018 RIBA Awards for International Excellence have been awarded to 20 exceptional new buildings in 16 countries, ranging from large urban infrastructure schemes to private homes; cultural destinations to civic spaces; educational buildings to places of worship.
In addition, Gustavo Utrabo and Pedro Duschenes, founders of Brazilian firm Aleph Zero, are the recipients of the RIBA International Emerging Architect 2018 for their project, the Children’s Village in Formoso do Araguaia, Brazil, designed with Rosenbaum. The Children’s Village provides boarding accommodation for 540 senior school children at the Canuanã School.
“It’s always a pleasure to be able to recognize and reward emerging talent. We were impressed by the way the architects embraced the question of how architecture can stimulate its users, as well as the surrounding community, in a region rich in natural resources but poor in opportunities, education, and economic resources”.
The 20 winning projects announced today form the longlist for the RIBA International Prize 2018. The shortlist of four buildings will be announced in September 2018 and the winner will be awarded in November 2018 to the most significant and inspirational building of the year. The winning project will exemplify design excellence, architectural ambition and deliver meaningful social impact. The RIBA International Prize is open to any qualified architect in the world.
