Cultural building of the year:

Rong Cultural Center by ZAV Architects

The Rong Cultural Center houses a 45-square-meter tourist information center, bike-rental shop, cafe, and a recycling-management space.

The center, which overlooks the Persian Gulf on the island of Hormoz in Iran, consists of two, red cement-clad domes connected by a long set of steps.

The architecture panel on the master jury commented that the project is "delightful" and "small yet monumental". They also added that it "questions the notion of its relevance, rather than just being a shelter and that it becomes part of public space".
