The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is delighted to announce the second edition of the RIBA International Prize, the highly prestigious award for the world’s best new building.

Now open for entries, the RIBA International Prize will be awarded to a building which exemplifies design excellence, architectural ambition and delivers meaningful social impact. The prize is open to any qualified architect in the world, for a building of any size, type or budget. Entries close on 17 October 2017.

The inaugural RIBA International Prize was awarded in 2016 to Grafton Architects for their outstanding university building, UTEC (Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología) in Lima, Peru. The innovative ‘vertical campus’ structure was dubbed ‘a modern-day Machu Picchu’ by the RIBA Jury.

The Grand Jury for the 2018 RIBA International Prize will be led by Elizabeth Diller, partner of acclaimed US firm, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and includes Joshua Bolchover, co-founder of Rural Urban Framework, a pioneering research and design collaborative practice based in Hong Kong and winner of the first RIBA International Prize’s award for Best Emerging Practice; and lay juror, acclaimed choreographer Wayne McGregor CBE, who will bring his passion and unique perspective on architecture to the prize. The full jury will be announced in due course.

The winner of the RIBA International Prize will be selected following a rigorous judging process that will see two expert panels of jurors visit each of the shortlisted buildings twice in person, before the Grand Jury selects four finalists to visit for a final time; the winning building will be announced in November 2018.
