Amid a series of winners announcements at the 2016 World Architecture Festival, Matt Emmett won the 2016 Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Award. The yearly Arcaid competition scopes out the sharpest shooters in architectural photography, in recognition of expertise and challenging norms in the artistic medium.
Out of 20 shortlisted entries, Emmett ultimately won the Arcaid jury's favor with his satisfyingly symmetric photo of the East London Water Works Company's 1868 covered reservoir in Finsbury Park, London. It's the first time a historic location was the subject of the winning Arcaid photo. Previous winners include Fernando Guerra and Hufton + Crow.

During the WAF gala dinner, Arcaid Images founder Lynne Bryant and Ulrike Stotmeister accepted the Arcaid Photography Award. Matt Emmett will get to take home the $3,000 Arcaid grand prize. Along with the winning photo, the 20 shortlisted entries will be featured in the ‘Building Images’ exhibition at Sto Werkstatt in London next February. In the following month, the photos will move to another exhibition at the Berlin-based Architektur Galerie.
Arcaid also published its first book earlier this year! “Architectural Photography Awards 2012–2015” celebrates the first four years of the Arcaid Architectural Photography Awards.
