In pictures: RIBA award winners

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) today announced the winners of the 2012 RIBA awards for new build architectural excellence.

The award winners will be considered for the Building of the Year award. Public arts buildings have done particularly well, with 10 entries receiving awards, and winners were mostly situated outside the capital. The ‘austerity chic’ trend, utilising environmentally-efficient materials, featured prominently.

RIBA president Angela Brady said: “What really stands out is that even in times of austerity, we can still deliver amazingly clever, high quality buildings that reflect the needs of today and enhance our daily lives.  The judges were delighted to see so many well considered, crafted and innovative projects, and the use of beautiful materials; these projects are truly exciting and inspiring.” 

“The huge range of great buildings will guarantee an exciting RIBA Stirling Prize shortlist later in the year and illustrates the value of quality in architecture.”
