"Our work is important, not us" says RIBA International Prize winner Kashef Chowdhury | Dezeen

Awards should not "glorify the architect" but they can draw attention to worthy projects, according to Bangladeshi architect Kashef Chowdhury, winner of this year's RIBA International Prize.

Chowdhury explained that he was "very surprised" when the Friendship Hospital, designed by his studio Kashef Chowdhury/URBANA, won the 2021 RIBA International Prize – a biennial award given to a project that "demonstrates design excellence and social impact" – early this year.
