The event, which seeks to award the best architecture from around the world in 30 individual categories, featured three days of talks, key-note speakers and networking opportunities. This year's theme was “Architects and the City,” focusing on the contributions architects make to cities, and how they affect – and are affected by – politics, infrastructure, planning communities and technology. Today, we culminate our series by taking a look at some of this year's festival winners.
