The program, the most prestigious in the world, honors new skyscrapers, commercial buildings, urban plans, private residences, and real estate projects that achieve a high standard of excellence in design, construction, planning, and sustainability and promote the best practice in all types of real estate development for the private and public sectors, including new skyscrapers, high rises, corporate and institutional buildings, commercial projects, city planning, restorations and adaptive reuse, religious and civic buildings, and interiors.

“From an impressive and visionary array of new submissions, the New York Jury selected 60 outstanding projects, each of which positively impacts its larger community — sometimes modestly, but most often massively,” states Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, President, The Chicago Athenaeum.

“The finalists span the globe, from South America to Asia, from North America to Europe, and we are particularly happy to share that diversity. All projects exhibit innovation in design, acute sensitivity to the environment, sustainability, adaptability to their surroundings, and provision of enjoyment to their many users. In one way or another, each finalist wowed the jury, which will make selection of the winners a real challenge.”

This year’s selected buildings were from 20 nations including: Australia, Burundi, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Japan, Lebanon, Norway, People’s Republic of China, The Netherlands, Qatar, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Turkey, Vietnam, and The United States.

The International Architecture Awards

The International Architecture Awards, founded ten years ago, is the centerpiece of The Chicago Athenaeum and the European Centre’s efforts to identify and promote best practices in all types of architectural development and to bring a global focus to light of the best new designs from around the world. It is the only global program of its kind.

Throughout the program’s history, all types of projects have been recognized for their excellence, including office, residential, recreational, urban/mixed-use, industrial/office park, commercial/retail, new community, rehabilitation, private residences, and public projects and programs.

This year’s jury consisted of New York architecture professionals: Frederick Bland, Beyer Blinder Belle; David Hess, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects; Mark Husser, Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners Limited; Audrey Matlock, Audrey Matlock Architects; Yvonne Szeto, Pei Freed Cobb & Partners Architects LLP.; and Christian Uhl, Smith-Miller + Hawkinson.
The elite group of buildings and urban planning projects selected by the jury will be premiered at the 14th International Biennial of Architecture Buenos Aires from September 19 through October 15, 2013 at Centro Cultural Recoleta in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The exhibition is entitled The City and the World and combines the The International Architecture Awards 2013 with The American Architecture Awards 2013.
After Buenos Aires the exhibition is scheduled to travel in Europe, opening at The European Centre’s Contemporary Space Athens in Athens, Greece.
A catalogue, Global Design + Urbanism, accompanies the exhibition published by Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd.
The deadline for the 2014 International Architecture Awards is December 1, 2013.
