BIG’s Twist Museum stars in the best architectural photography of the year

Plus ‘the best of the rest’

The winner of the annual Architectural Photography Awards has been announced – and this year’s top image is a moody shot of Bjarke Ingel’s Twist Museum in Norway.

Photographer Laurian Ghinitoiu scooped the overall top prize for his shot of the accordion-like museum at the Kistefos Sculpture Park in Jevnaker. It was picked from 24 shortlisted images across six categories at the annual competition, which is supported by Sto and staged in Amsterdam as part of the World Architecture Festival.

The Romanian photographer also won the ‘Portfolio’ category for his images of the GHI transformation project (part of the Cité du Grand Parc in Bordeaux by practice Lacaton & Vassal, Druot, Huti) and the ‘Building in Use’ category with his shot of Skanderbeg Square in Albania’s Tirana.

Photographer He Zhenhuan took the top slot in the ‘Interiors’ and ‘Mobile (public)’ category, Tzu Chin Yu for ‘Mobile WAF’, category and Inge Schuster for ‘Sense of Place’.
