Designing a building or other structural facility is an art form on its own, but photographers are able to share the beauty of architecture with their keen eye for shapes, colors, and unique perspectives. That's why architectural photos are so celebrated by Arcaid Images and awarded through their annual competition. The contest judges a photographer's ability to not only capture subjects from our built world, but to also "look beyond the architecture to the composition, light, scale, atmosphere, sense of place and understanding of the project" 

This year's Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards has just announced its winners at the World Architecture Festival, presenting the grand prize to Hufton + Crow. [ 13 photos total ]
