This “sb” presents the winning projects of the 2017 IOC IPC IAKS architecture prizes.
The IOC IAKS Exemplary Awards programme is recognized internationally for drawing together the most innovative, creative, and functional facilities from across the globe. Complemented by the IPC IAKS Distinction for universal accessibility, the winning projects showcase the noteworthy collaborations between owners, designers and operators.
This year’s winners come from four continents and 12 countries. They span the range of major international sports event venues in Singapore and Brazil, to small and socially meaningful skateparks in Palestine and Spain.
The Student and Young Professionals Design Competition, sponsored by the IOC, IPC and IAKS, similarly had an extremely broad range of submissions from 11 countries. This year’s winners feature a Gold-winning submission from Russia, and both a Silver and Bronze medal for submissions from Italy.
