More than 10,000 pictures have been uploaded onto the app by professionals and amateurs alike. Each picture was then voted by the global community in a democratic process where “everyone can participate, vote, win” to identify the fifty finalists. Among them, the winner was selected – gaining both the title #Architecture2020 Hero and the $1000 cash prize.

You can see a selection of the finalists in the gallery below, and head over to Agora to see the full range of pictures at the link here.
