Vectorworks Users Make Shortlist for RIBA's Inaugural International Prize for Architecture

In its inaugural year, the Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) International Prize for Architecture recognizes the most significant building of the year that demonstrates visionary, innovative thinking and excellence of execution, while making a distinct contribution to its users and to its physical context. Unlike any previous RIBA award for architecture, the RIBA International Prize is open to any qualified architect in the world.

With hundreds of entries from 50 countries, RIBA recently announced the shortlisted buildings for the prize. We’re ecstatic to see some Vectorworks users gracing the top 30 projects, which range from large urban infrastructure schemes, private residential projects, and cultural destinations to civic spaces, academic buildings, and places of worship. Best of luck to our superstar users: Studio Andreas Heller Architects & Designers, dRMM Architects, Agence d’architecture Philippe Prost (AAPP), Peter Stutchbury Architecture, and Neutelings Riedijk Architects. Check out their work below.

The RIBA awards committee will visit the shortlisted projects this summer to narrow the list down to the top 20, which the Grand Jury will tour and subsequently choose six finalists this autumn. The winner of the first RIBA International Prize will be announced in December 2016.

The Grand Jury is chaired by Richard Rogers of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. Fellow jurors include Billie Tsien, founding partner of New York-based Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects | Partners, Kunlé Adeyemi, founder and principal of NLÉ, Marilyn Jordan Taylor, FAIA, the dean of architecture at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Fine Arts, and Philip Gumuchdjian, founder of Gumuchdjian Architects and Chair of RIBA Awards.
