The 2017 WAF Building of the Year is one of 62 projects that make up the longlist for the 2018 RIBA International Prize
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced a 62-strong longlist for its second biennial RIBA International Prize.
Launched as global award open to "all qualified architects anywhere in the world," the RIBA International Prize replaced RIBA's Lubetkin Prize, which was limited to RIBA members outside the European Union. The inaugural winner of the prize was UTEC - Universidad de Ingeneria Y Technologia by Grafton Architects with Shell Arquitectos. The second winner will be one of the 62 projects listed below. But we won't know the winner until late 2018, when the five-person jury (among them Liz Diller of DS+R and Joshua Bolchover of RUR) visits the finalists, which will be determined sometime between now and then.
