A stunning celebration of the built world

Now is the chance to pre-order your copy of The Art Of Building 2019 ahead of its limited print run on 30 September.

Just 200 individually-numbered copies will be produced of this stunning collection of photographs submitted to the CIOB’s annual Art of Building competition, which capture surprising, inspiring and sometimes unsettling aspects of the built world and how humanity and nature interact with it.

Its nearly 100 photographs are drawn from successful competition finalists and entrants to the globally-popular contest whose work merits attention.

The images, both colour and monochrome, provide arresting glimpses of the built environment in nearly 40 countries, mixing bold contemporary visions with forgotten history, and exploring human themes ranging from triumph to struggle, and the everyday to the divine.

Each spread, printed on high-grade, gloss Garda paper from Italy, reveals two photographs, juxtaposed either sympathetically or in contrast: some celebrate the built world, others challenge its impact.
