As the name suggests, the Architectural Photography Awards are all about celebrating the most mesmerising, mind-melting shots of buildings around the world. Taking photographs of buildings is an art in itself – and the APAs are all about recognising that.
2022 makes the tenth edition of the Architectural Photography Awards and, as usual, the shortlist is split into six categories: ‘exterior’, ‘interior’, ‘sense of place’, ‘buildings in use’, ‘mobile’ and ‘portfolio’.
Twenty three images in total made this year’s shortlist, which is on display at the World Architecture Festival in Lisbon until December 2 (find out more about that here). The winners are set to be announced in December but, in the meantime, here are a few of our favourite shortlisted shots.
