Architects rarely get their chance in the limelight. As arts go, this design field has always been seen as a more practical and science based pursuit, yet at the World Architecture Festival that all changes.

Celebrating the artistry and complexity of modern architecture, the award ceremony highlights the achievements of designers who create beautiful, functional and sustainable buildings around the world.

The event, sponsored by media group Emap, drew 800 entries from firms representing 62 countries to compete in 15 categories based on public, regional and societal criteria.

Among the honorees was Australian designer John Choi whose $25 million redevelopment of the TKTS Booth and Father Duffy Square in New York''s Times Square joined a collection of Aussie builders in making a significant impact on this year''s festivities.

''''Public space, public playing space and a house - that''s a pretty wide range of excellence to be acknowledged by our peers. It''s all good,'''' he tells the Sydney Morning Herald.

This year, the global celebration of modern Architecture was held in Barcelona, a city selected by time magazine as one of the best designed in Europe.
