Our project "Paramit - factory in the forest" is among the 62 nominees for the "Best New Building of the World 2018" prize, namely the RIBA International Prize, which arguably is the most prestigious architectural prize in the World. Quoting from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) website, "the 2018 RIBA International Prize will be awarded to a building which exemplifies design excellence, architectural ambition and delivers meaningful social impact. [...] The prize is open to any qualified architect in the world, for a building of any size, type or budget and will be adjudicated by a stellar Grand Jury led by Elizabeth Diller, partner of acclaimed US firm, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and includes Joshua Bolchover, co-founder of Rural Urban Framework, and acclaimed choreographer Wayne McGregor CBE who will bring his passion and unique perspective on architecture to the Prize."
We are overjoyed with being nominated for this world renowned prize. Being nominated is already a major achievement in itself.
