“The RIBA Awards for International Excellence 2018 are a testament to the breadth and quality of architecture being created around the world," said RIBA President Ben Derbyshire of the twenty projects recently announced as winners of the 2018 Awards for International Excellence. Selected for their architectural ambition, design ingenuity and excellence of execution, the best new buildings in the world, according to RIBA, demonstrate the significant and far-reaching contribution that architecture makes to our daily lives.
The selected schemes were chosen from entries for the RIBA International Prize, the winner of which will be announced in November. Started in 2016, the International Prize is RIBA's only award open to an architect based anywhere in the world. It is the Institute's own version of recognizing the world's best new building of the year that, as they describe, exemplifies innovative building design and excellence in execution — regardless of style, size of scheme and budget, and complexity.
Beyond, RIBA also announced the 2018 International Emerging Architect winners. Gustavo Utrabo and Pedro Duschenes, founders of Brazilian architecture firm Aleph Zero, were selected for their project, the Children Village in Formoso do Araguaia, Brazil. Julia Barfield, Chair of the RIBA Awards Group, said: “We were impressed by the way the architects embraced the question of how architecture can stimulate its users, as well as the surrounding community, in a region rich in natural resources but poor in opportunities, education and economic resources. Aleph Zero are philosophical, reflectful and thoughtful architects who are reinterpreting the Brazilian vernacular using the abundant natural resources that surround the site in an innovative way which inherently promotes both economic and environmental sustainability."
