Record-breaking number of buildings win RIBA Awards

A staggering 70 new buildings across Britain and the EU have been rewarded with RIBA Awards for their high architectural standards and their contribution to their local environment. Projects selected for their design excellence range in size and use from a small shelter for ferry passengers on the Scottish island of Tiree, to an energy efficient housing scheme in Surrey. The awards were announced this evening at a special dinner in London in the run up to Architecture Week 2003 (20 – 29 June)

The 70 winners will form the longlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize in association with The Architects’ Journal, which will be broadcast for the fourth year running on Channel 4 on Sunday 12 October.

Speaking at the awards dinner RIBA President Paul Hyett said: “The large number of winners this year is testament to the fact that our built environment continues to change for the better. It is clear that those who commission buildings understand and appreciate, more and more, the benefits that good architecture can bring to them and the local community. I am particularly delighted to see two primary schools, a hospital and several social housing schemes on the list of winners, proving that good architecture does not have to be the preserve of the rich and elite. The inclusion of a waste treatment plant also illustrates clearly that architecture can “lift the spirit” in even the most unpalatable of surroundings!

“We are grateful to Channel 4 for their continuing commitment to architecture on our television screens. 2003 looks set to be another exciting year for the RIBA Stirling Prize.”

Paul Finch, deputy chairman of the Commission for Architecture and Built Environment (CABE) and editorial director of The Architects’ Journal, who spoke at the awards dinner commented,
“The past year has seen an exceptionally high level of quality of entry for these awards; this is most welcome, and continuing evidence of improved standards which the RIBA Awards promote.”

If some can be added can others be removed? I am surprised by the inclusion one particular building in Dublin which is intellectually suspect, architecturally problematic, practically compromised and visually unbalanced.

Stirling Prize 2003 will come from the list above. Reference to the Spire's chances relate to next year's awards, 2004.
