The Art of Building photography competition, run by the Chartered Institute of Building, showcases the best photography of the built environment. Open to both professional and amateur photographers, the contest celebrates the creativity of the industry, the passion of the people who work within it, and the impact their work has on those who make use of the final construction.

Thousands of entries have been narrowed down to just 15 images. IBTimes UK presents these finalists, along with a comment from each photographer. You can vote for your favourite photograph in this year's competition at the Art of Building website.
