howardchapmanHoward Chapman, Buildingtalk Editor, Congratulations to the winner of the CIOB’s annual international Art of Building photography.


Art of Building

There were more than 3,000 entries for the prestigious CIOB digital photography competition.


The image above (copyright Ata Adnan), taken by a doctor from Bangladesh, won the top prize. Daredevil, his image of a child climbing across the arch of a bridge, is an example of the interaction between humans and architecture – and was a worthy winner of the competition. .

There were 12 runners up in the shortlist from Denmark, USA, Iceland, Hong Kong, India, Spain and the UK.

My 3 favourites for honourable mention from this shortlist, were:
