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”.
