Stock photography stalwart Arcaid Images just announced the 20 of the year’s best architectural photographs in the running for the 2016 Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards. Photographs are shortlisted under four categories: Exteriors, Interiors, Sense of Place and Buildings in Use. The photographs will be showcased at World Architecture Festival from November 16-18 in Berlin, Germany. The overall winner will be revealed at a gala dinner following the show.
The Arcaid Images Architectural Photographer of the year Award highlights the expertise of the specialist architectural photographer, translating the sophistication of architecture into a readable and understandable two dimensions, to explain and extol the character, detail and environment of the project.
Judge Emily Booth, Executive Editor, The Architectural Review said “It was a privilege to help judge these awards – and the range and quality of photographs was impressive. For me, the images that particularly stood out were the ones that made you pause, that invited you to explore the picture further, and that challenged preconceived ideas.”
