Scottish buildings win architecture prizes


Ten Scottish buildings have been awarded for their architectural excellence by the Royal Institue of British Architects (RIBA).

They, along with 87 other winners, are now being considered for the £20,000 RIBA stirling prize which is awarded to the building of the year.

The president of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, Sholto Humphries, said:

“It is clear that Scottish architectural talent is competing strongly, both within the UK and more widely.”


President of RIBA, Ruth Reed, said: “Winning projects demonstrate that even in constrained times committed clients working with talented architects can achieve architectural excellence.

“These well-designed buildings will add huge value to the lives, prosperity, health and pride of their owners, users and communities.”
