Showcasing new projects of all types worldwide by both established and emerging practices, Architecture 11 is essential reading for anyone interested in recent developments in contemporary architecture. This authoritative book is the official guide to the work of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and all the RIBA's awards presented in 2011. The featured awards include the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize, given to the architects of the building that has made the greatest contribution in the past year to the evolution of architecture and the built environment, and the Royal Gold Medal, conferred on a distinguished architect in recognition of a lifetime's work. Also included are reflections on 'A Year in Architecture' by the RIBA President, the RIBA International and Honorary Fellowships, the RIBA President's Medals Student Awards, and the Housing Design Awards.
Tony Chapman, Hon. FRIBA, is Head of Awards at the Royal Institute of British Architects, London. His book, The Stirling Prize: Ten Years of Architecture and Innovation was published by Merrell in 2006.
