Speaking about the finalists Caroline Gumble, Chief Executive of the CIOB said: “This selection of photographs explores the remarkable creativity and variation of the built world, its power to affect our lives and its importance in our cultures.  The range is spectacular, and we congratulate all the finalists.”
