Every year, the Arcaid Architectural Photography Awards competition scopes out the sharpest shooters in architectural photography, in recognition of expertise and challenging norms in the artistic medium. An esteemed jury evaluates the photos based on composition, sense of place, atmosphere, and use of scale. Last year, Fernando Guerra won with his vibrant shot of EPFL Quartier Nord designed by Richter Dahl Rocha & Associés. Hufton + Crow received the award in 2014 for their interior photo of Zaha Hadid's Heydar Aliyev Centre.
This year's jury (listed below) shortlisted 20 photos in four categories: Buildings in Use, Exteriors, Interiors, and Sense of Place. You'll find buildings designed by the likes of Wiel Arets, Peter Zumthor, Coop Himmelb(l)au, and Lina Bo Bardi captured in refreshing perspectives.
Get a glimpse of this year's shortlist below.
See the shortlisted photos in person at the upcoming World Architecture Festival in Berlin on November 16-18. One photo will then be crowned the Arcaid Architectural Photographer of the Year during the WAF Gala Dinner.
The 2016 jury members are Emily Booth, Executive Editor, The Architectural Review; Amy Croft, Artist and curator of Sto Werkstatt, London; Katy Harris, Communications Director, Foster + Partners, London; Kai-Uwe Bergmann, Partner at BIG; Fernando Guerra, Architectural Photographer, Portugal; and Ulrich Müller, Photographer and founder of Architektur Galerie, Berlin.
