The UAE Pavilion at EXPO 2020, taken by Francesca Pompei
“Designed by the Swiss-Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava for the Dubai Expo. At the centre of the structure there is a sphere-shaped void that serves as an auditorium with a capacity of 200. Its continuum form is a symbol of resilience and of a boundless future embracing a dialogue among different cultures.”

House of God by Roman Robroek, taken in Italy
“Little is known about the history of this wonderful church, but the construction of the original structure dates back to the 10th/11th century. The current structure, set on the rocky wall of a medieval village, is from the second half of the 17th century.”

The Ysios winery in Araba, Spain, by Pedro Luis Ajuriaguerra Saiz
“The Ysios Winery, whose name is a tribute to the Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris, was built on a vineyard of more than 120 hectares. Located in Rioja Alavesa, at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria, and designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava, in which functionality and avant-garde are entirely at the service of winemaking.”

New vs Old Baku by Les Forrester, shot in Azerbaijan
“The new and the old Baku side by side. In the background are the apartments from the Soviet era, while in the foreground sits the contemporary architecture of Zaha Hadid and the Heydar Aliyev Centre.”

A man made forest by Chong Boon Wong, in Singapore
“A man made forest in a greenhouse setting.”

My own little cosmos within reach, by Pati John in the Netherlands
“The unexpected beauty of the elusive nature manifesting the most beautiful Milky Way I have seen – surrounded by amazing architectural symmetry. I discovered this astonishing view looking up while I walked around the mall … it was breath-taking … and so I stayed there for a long time with my tripod and ND filter to capture every detail in my long-exposure shot.”
