Architecture Scotland Annual 2019 entries invited

Urban Realm is resuming its search for the best new buildings of 2019 with an open call for entries completed over the past 12 months.

The latest edition of the yearbook brings a decade of great architecture to a close, covering the full gamut of architecture from private homes through to the biggest city centre regeneration schemes.

Editor John Glenday said: “We have been serving up a daily diet of new buildings for over 13 years but our appetite remains as insatiable as ever. 

“As we bring another decade of great design to a close I am determined to demonstrate that this country’s best work is being delivered here and now in 2019.”

Published continuously since 2006 in print and online the book is required reading for anyone wishing to stay abreast of the rapid and transformative changes being wrought to our built environment each and every year.

A full archive of past submissions is maintained under our new buildings subsection, where you will also find our straightforward submission form.

Come on all you 'architects' in Scotland! This can't be too difficult for you to win judging by the buildings we have seen this year. Most of you go for mundane, but if you've excelled yourself and reached for mediocrity you should win it.

I entered a competition once.
Got "short listed" and was told judges were carrying out site visits of the shortlisted entries prior to deciding on the winners.
Was persuaded by the organisers to buy a table and took clients to the awards dinner.
We didn't win.
Spoke to one of the judges at the bar afterwards and asked what they thought of the project during their site visit.
Said they didn't know the project, hadn't gone to see it.
So decided never to enter an "Award" or "Competition" again.

That is shocking. I can confirm there is no shortlisting (or fee) for the ASA, so get submitting!

#2, had similar experience just recently. We went in for an award and were really happy to hear we were a finalist. Bought the table for the awards dinner, and when we were there found out from one of the judges that everyone who entered - as many as 13 in category and loads of categories - were all announced as finalists. He was surprised that even the schemes that scored really low had been given the same ‘Finalist’ status after the judging. It really devalued the whole thing for me, it was just a cynical drive by the organisers to get us all to the dinner and make more money off us. Won’t be doing that again.
