Twelve projects showcase the best of Scotland

In the aftermath of the devastating fire at the Glasgow School of Art, the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland celebrated the best of Scottish architecture, announcing 12 award winners for 2018 at a special dinner in Glasgow on 20 June. The judging panel was chaired by RIAS president Stewart Henderson, and Joanna van Heyningen OBE of van Heyningen and Haward Architects representing the RIBA. Other professional judges were augmented by a number of industry partners supporting the RIAS’ Special Category Awards.

‘The quality of architecture being produced the length and breadth of the country is hugely impressive,’ said Henderson. ‘Practices large and small continue to demonstrate the strength and purpose of the profession in Scotland. These awards demonstrate that buildings of all scales throughout the country are exemplary in their design, execution and in what they deliver for their clients, users and communities.’ The winners will form the shortlist for the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award, supported by the Doolan family and the Scottish government, which will be announced in November.
