NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ArchDaily (http://www.archdaily.com) is currently the most visited Architecture website in the world. With more than 6,000,000 visits and more than 60,000,000 pageviews a month, it is recognized as the ultimate source of inspiration for thousands of architects (http://www.fastcompany.com/1765064/chilean-entrepreneurs-redesign-the-architecture-industry), a community of global professionals that once again has acted as the jury for the Building of the Year Awards. It was the collective intelligence formed by our own readers that chose, out of nearly 3,000 projects, the best architecture worldwide.
Last month, ArchDaily partnered with HP to launch these unique awards for the architecture community. On February 14, after more than 70,000 votes from all over the world, the winners for ArchDaily's Building of the Year Awards 2012 were announced.
It has been 4 exciting weeks where readers chose their favorite building. Divided into 14 categories, this year's winners vary from emerging young architects like MVN Arquitectos or Luis Rebelo de Andrade & Diogo Aguiar to the most prestigious offices of MAD Architects and OMA. The project range from an artistic church made only of steel in Belgium or a low-cost Training Centre that improves social conditions of workers in Indonesia to the Velodrome for the London 2012 Olympics, or a 30,000 sqm urban space in Denmark, every project noted for their unique and innovative designs.
