Two "sister skyscrapers" designed by architect David Childs have been unveiled for Chicago's waterfront, nearly 10 years after work on Santiago Calatrava's ill-fated Chicago Spire halted on the same plot.
The 400 Lake Shore Drive development is located where the Chicago River flows into Lake Michigan, on the site the Spanish architect's 150-storey Spire began construction in 2007 but was stopped the following year due to the global financial crisis.

The Royal Institute of British Architects has announced the 20 recipients of the RIBA Awards for International Excellence 2018. The winners were selected from a list of 62 buildings in the running for the 2018 International Prize, which will awarded in November to the most significant and inspirational building of the year. The 20 projects are located in 16 countries and include private homes, large infrastructure schemes, cultural buildings, and civic spaces. Honorees include Renzo Piano’s Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens, Kimmel Eshkolot Architects’ Mount Herzl Memorial Hall in Jerusalem, and Stanton Williams’ renovation of the Musée d’arts de Nantes in France.
“These 20 outstanding projects were selected for their architectural ambition, design ingenuity and excellence of execution,” said RIBA President Ben Derbyshire. “Importantly, they demonstrate the significant and far-reaching contribution that architecture makes to our daily lives.”

This fall, a number of cities around the world will celebrate the openings of major new museums—many of them with architecture as worthy of awe as the art itself. Some openings, like the Jean Nouvel–designed Louvre Abu Dhabi, will be seismic events for the architectural world. Others, like the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Jakarta, signal the maturation of their country’s flourishing arts scenes into subjects of international interest. From Cape Town’s Zeitz Museum—the first major museum in Africa devoted exclusively to contemporary art—to the Bible Museum in Washington, D.C., where visitors can roam a garden filled with plants referenced in the good book, the next few months will bring a bounty of new places to wander, learn, and find inspiration for years to come.
