The shortlist of 20 stunning architectural images has been announced for the 2017 Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards.

The awards aims to highlight the expertise of specialist architectural photographers, who translate architecture into understandable 2D terms that explain the detail, character and environment of each project.

The annual award presents prizes in four categories – Exteriors, Interiors, Sense of Place, and Building in Use.

The shortlist was selected by a panel of judges that included Royal Academy of Arts curator Kate Goodwin, Klein Dytham Architecture founders Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein, photographers Richard Bryant and Matt Emmett, and designer Andrew Chen.

The 20 shortlisted images will be exhibited at this year’s World Architecture Festival in Berlin between 15 and 17 November, with an overall winner announced at the event’s gala dinner. A selection of the shortlisted entries will also feature in an exhibition at Sto Werkstatt, London, in 2018.

See the slideshow above for the 20 shortlisted images.
