Buildings in Brazil, Hungary, Japan and Italy have been shortlisted by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for its International Prize in 2018. The Central European University by O'Donnell + Tuomey is one of the four shortlisted projects. The prize is given to a project that "exemplifies design excellence, architectural ambition and delivers meaningful social impact," according to RIBA.
The shortlist was selected from a longlist of 20 buildings from 16 countries, which was narrowed down from a first round selection of 62 projects.The winner will be announced later this year once each member of the prize's grand jury has made a site visit to all the projects.
The inaugural prize in 2016 was won by Grafton Architects so if O'Donnell + Tuomey were successful that would be two in a row for Irish Architecture.
