With the World Architecture Forum revealing its 2017 World Building of the Year shortlist earlier this year, RIBA — the Royal Institute of British Architects — has announced the 62 buildings vying for its own crown. The RIBA International Prize aims to set a global standard for architecture, and sees buildings from 28 different countries on its long list.

Some of the standout competitors — and early favorites — include the Zeitz MOCAA by Thomas Heatherwick and Stefano Boeri’s Vertical Forest in Milan. Elsewhere, the longlist includes projects from studios including Zaha Hadid Architects, Bjarke Ingels Group and Apple’s go-to architects foster + partners.

You can see the full list over on Dezeen. In other architecture news, take a look at the world’s tallest hybrid timber tower in Vancouver.
