The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has revealed the 2018 RIBA International List, the longlist of buildings in the running for one of the world’s most prestigious architecture awards, the RIBA International Prize.

The biennial award considers the world’s best new buildings completed in the past two years that exemplify “design excellence, architectural ambition and delivering meaningful social impact.” This year’s longlist features 62 projects from around the world, more than double the number selected for the longlist of the inaugural prize in 2016.

“The RIBA International List 2018 shines a light on the world’s best new buildings and most impressive architectural talent,” said RIBA President, Ben Derbyshire. “Most importantly, this significant selection of 62 projects illustrates the meaningful impact and transformative quality that well-designed buildings can have on communities, wherever they are in the world.”

The shortlist for the RIBA International Prize will be selected from this list by a Grand Jury led by esteemed architect Elizabeth Diller of Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The overall winner of the RIBA International Prize will be announced in December 2018.

Grafton Architects’  Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología (UTEC) in Lima won the inaugural RIBA International Prize in 2016.

Description

Table lamp with diffused light, steel base, internal structure in painted metal, diffuser made by 30 superimposed elements in white opal methacrylate.

Designed by Elio Martinelli in 1999 is part of a series of various types of lamps: pendant, table and floor. In some versions we also used to light commercial spaces and mueseums. The design inspiration comes from the willing of reproduce the lightness of a cloud in internal ambience, where the lgiht is filtered in a play of light and shadows created by superposition of the elements and where the dream finds its origin and its space to appear and again to disappear.

Silver Medal: ‘Cycles of Toolmaking: An Optic, Tactile, Haptic, Material, Scalar and Pedagogic Study’ / Daniel Hall. Image Courtesy of RIBA

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced the winners of their 2017 President’s Medals honoring the world’s best student projects. The awards, recognized as the world’s most prestigious in architectural education, were established in 1836 (the institute’s oldest award) to “promote excellence in the study of architecture [and] to reward talent and to encourage architectural debate worldwide.”

Medals are awarded in three categories: the Bronze for a Part I student (Bachelor level), the Silver for a Part II student (Masters level), and the Dissertation Medal. In addition to these, the winners of the Serjeant Award for Excellence in Drawing and the SOM Foundation Fellowships have been announced.

This year, the Silver Medal was awarded to a student from an institution not currently validated by the RIBA.

“Many congratulations to this year’s RIBA President’s Medals winners,” said RIBA President Ben Derbyshire at the ceremony in London. “The entries for this awards programme are always impressive and this year was no exception, with more entries than ever before. I am extremely pleased to see that the creativity and accomplished technique in the work of these budding architects is matched with a renewed ambition and focus on the important role that architecture plays in social betterment.”

RIBA Silver Medal: Daniel Hall (The Cooper Union, New York, USA)

Cycles of Toolmaking: An Optic, Tactile, Haptic, Material, Scalar and Pedagogic Study 

Sited in the ceramic town of Mashiko, Japan, the project proposes a place for learning which responds to the attitudes towards land use, extraction of clay, ceramic craft, agriculture, and water infrastructure, to replace a school damaged in the 2011 Tohoku earthquake.

RIBA Bronze Medal: Kangli Zheng (University of Nottingham)

Castle in the Sky

The project is a response to London’s housing crisis, proposing an alternative model: flexible room boxes plugged into the available space above London’s terraces. In these communities in the sky, the space is defined by its occupants, who can replace and customise architectural typologies such as residential homes, co-housing spaces, storage properties, and shared public gardens.
