RIBA announces world’s best new building


The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced the winner of the world’s best new building. The Friendship Hospital in Bangladesh, designed by Kashef Chowdhury/URBANA, will be awarded the RIBA International Prize, the global accolade for design excellence and social impact.

The remote community hospital was commissioned by the NGO Friendship and provides a medical lifeline for thousands of people from Satkhira, an area of Bangladesh that was heavily affected by a major cyclone in 2007. It was described by the grand jury as an “exemplar of innovative architecture that addresses critical global issues – unequal access to healthcare and the crushing impact of climate breakdown on vulnerable communities”.
