Ten of the best crowned at 2019 RIAS Awards
May 31 2019
The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland have published the best architecture of 2019 after alighting on 10 key projects which espouse the highest design standards.
Drawn from 19 shortlisted buildings revealed earlier in the year the winning group includes The Black House by Dualchas; The V&A at Dundee by Kengo Kuma with PiM.studio Architects and James F Stephen Architects plus Broomlands Primary by Stallan-Brand.
Prof. John Cole CBE Hon FRIAS, Jury Chair, commented: “The journey to view the nineteen shortlisted projects, which, within a hectic but rewarding three-day period, took my fellow judges and myself through the intriguing Scottish borders, the self-confident central belt, and the glorious landscapes of the highlands and islands, was for all of us a reaffirmation of the fundamental importance of the ability of architecture at its best to positively influence the lives of individuals and communities.”
All winning projects will be considered for the RIAS Andrew Doolan best building in Scotland award.
