The winners of the 2013 AR+D Awards for Emerging Architecture have been announced! The awards, presented by The Architectural Review and now in its 15th year, have seen "projects from locales as diverse as Bloomsbury and the Himalayas." This year over 350 entries were discussed by four esteemed judges, including Sir Peter Cook, and have led to four winners who will share a prize fund of £10,000. See both the four winning entries and the ten highly commended schemes after the break...

The award accepts only built work based on the ethos that architecture "cannot simply be confined to paper or computerized theorizing, but is a compact with society to build well and to build responsibly." The winning and commended schemes offer "a compelling snapshot of design activity from around the world the winning schemes are a powerful incentive for others to go out and do even better."

A secret world is revealed that cannot be seen except from inside and cannot be heard by the naked ear, only by tuning in to its radio frequency or from a few special listening pipes.

With poetic thoughtfulness towards program and place, Cemetery Hall in Japan emerges from the forested hills of Sayamaya with an emphasis on natural materials, handling of light, and the expression of a connection with nature.
