These stunning photographs of architectural wonders made it to the shortlist for the annual World Architecture Festival in Berlin
It is no surprise Johann Wolfgang von Goethe called architecture frozen music. The craft belongs to the highest of visual arts that creates one of the bases of our civilisation.
Stock picture service Arcaid Images has revealed the shortlist of photographs selected for their annual Architectural Photography Awards. The photos will be exhibited at the World Architecture Festival in Berlin from 15 to 17 November.
A jury of designers, photographers and journalists selected the pictures out of hundreds of entries and placed them in four different categories – Exterior, Interior, Sense of Place, and Building in Use.
The pictures capture architectural masterpieces from around the globe. A university in Hangzhou, a museum in Denmark, a velodrome in the UK, or Samsung’s headquarters in San Jose – they are all there.
“More than just informing people about the existence of such places, the best photos go beyond that and entice people to learn more about the buildings, cities, and landscapes – maybe even booking a flight to see them firsthand. That feeling hit me on numerous occasions,” said John Hill, Editor of the World-Architects eMagazine and Awards judge.
The winner of the award will be announced during the Gala Dinner on Friday 17 November.
