RIBA International Awards shortlist celebrates the world’s best buildings
The Royal Institute of British Architects announced the three architecture projects in the running for the RIBA International Prize 2021, the prestigious biannual prize that celebrates architectural excellence around the world.
Three exceptional projects located in Denmark, Bangladesh and Germany were selected with varying scales and purposes that make an important contribution to the communities and places around them.
The shortlist included a remote community hospital set in the fragile watery landscape of the Bengal, built to withstand the ravages of climate change, by Kashef Chowdhury/URBANA, a classically inspired entrance building and visitor centre for the world leading cultural destination and Unesco World Heritage Site, Museum Island by David Chipperfield Architects Berlin, and an elegant and technically innovative new cyclist and pedestrian bridge in the Danish capital by WilkinsonEyre and Urban Agency.
