The awarded new buildings and urban planning projects in this year’s edition of The International Architecture Awards illustrate an amazing collection of buildings and urban environments that have the capacity to amaze, inspire and improve our quality of life.

The 2017 Awards demonstrate a dedication to the highest standards in building design that continues to impact contemporary design today. These new buildings demonstrate the fantastic standard of architectural talent working across the globe, as well as the ambition and determination of the visionary clients who commission them.

The Awards put a spotlight on some of the smaller and unique, but no less ambitious, projects. They show that budget, location or many other challenges are no constraints to the production of superb quality architecture as long as you have the commitment of an imaginative and capable architect working with a great client.

For nearly 20 years the International Architecture Awards have reflected the changing state of the global practice and have revealed emerging design trends that establish a new high standard for global design today.
