Guangzhou International Finance Center wins RIBA International Award

Guangzhou International Finance Center has won a 2012 RIBA International Award. International Awards reward excellent work being done by RIBA members around the world, and are for buildings outside the EU by RIBA Chartered Architects and RIBA International Fellows.

Described by judges as "a hugely complex project that appears to be extraordinarily simple", the project will now be considered for the 2012 Lubetkin Prize, which will be announced in October alongside the RIBA Stirling Prize.

Guangzhou International Finance Center was also named Best Tall Building in Asia/Australasia in 2011 by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.
