Fourteen images were selected out of more than 1,200 submissions for the 2017 AIA Architectural Photography Competition, open to U.S. architects as well as associate AIA and AIAS members. Established in 1985, the competition is run by AIA St. Louis. This latest batch of winning photographs feature recognizable works such as The Broad in Los Angeles and the Climatron in St. Louis, as well as more abstract depictions of architecture. Submissions for the 2018 competition are open through April 1, 2018.
