Launching in the twentieth anniversary year of the esteemed UK Stirling Prize, the RIBA International Prize is the largest accolade in the firm’s annual awards portfolio, which was established to celebrate architectural excellence across the globe.
Open to any qualified architect in the world, the RIBA International Prize will be awarded to a building that demonstrates innovative and visionary design, as well as delivers a positive social impact. The winner will be chosen by a Grand Jury led by Richard Rogers and including Kunlé Adeyemi, and Philip Gumuchdjian.
Chair of the Grand Jury, Richard Rogers welcomed the inclusion of the new prize into the institute’s ranks, “I’m delighted to lead the jury for the inaugural RIBA International Prize, and look forward to discovering how architecture is reacting to and resolving issues posed by the changing demands of a global community. We look forward to establishing the RIBA International Prize as a new standard by which to assess and promote design excellence on a global scale.”
The inaugural award will be given in London in December 2016.
