Picture perfect: digital images showcase the art of building

Awe-inspiring design is not often associated with the workplace, but why not? The winners of the Art of Building Photographer of the Year present some of the most inspiring images real estate has to offer

Inspiring a sense of awe is not often something we encounter, particularly in our workspaces. However, according to scientific research, awe-inspiring spaces and experiences can challenge our expectations and encourage creativity.

The Art Building Photographer of the Year is a competition run by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) in the UK, which awards some of the most inspiring digital photography of the built environment in the world. These finalists, announced in January 2020, show buildings and spaces in a new light, stimulating our imagination and suggesting the art of the possible. More information on the awards here.
