Shortlist announced for Andrew Doolan award
October 21 2011
A record 35 submissions were received for this year’s iteration of the annual accolade, reflecting a range of budgets and a diverse group of locales from beyond the central belt.
RIAS president Sholto Humphries said of the shortlist: “Their geography covers the whole of Scotland and they range from a multi-million pound council office complex to the joyful transformation of a Glasgow motorway junction. I am looking forward to the challenge of selecting a winner from this diverse and brilliant bunch.”
Professor Andrew MacMillan, chair of the judging panel, said: “The late and much missed Andrew Doolan knew what he was doing when he decided that Scotland should have the richest architectural prize in the UK. He laid down a challenge which Scottish architects have answered year on year with buildings which have a real sense of place and show just what good architecture delivers for Scotland.”
Elder + Cannon won the 2010 prize for their work on new office space for Shettleston Housing Association.
The winner will be unveiled on November 17.
