The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) have announced a 27 strong shortlist for the 2017 awards. The judging panel for this year includes Karen Anderson FRIAS (Timber representative), Lorraine Landels Hon FRIAS, Stuart McKnight RIBA, MUMA (representing the Royal Institute of British Architects) and Ole Wiig FRIAS.
Willie Watt, President of the RIAS, commented:
“Year on year the quality of Scottish Architecture is on the rise. Despite an economic climate which continues to squeeze fees and challenge professionals’ ability to deliver, Scotland’s architects are delivering work of truly international quality to serve our citizens and communities. Last year’s Festival of Architecture shone a bright light on both historic and contemporary Scottish buildings, literally highlighting a tradition of excellence. That tradition continues and as this brilliant shortlist demonstrates, Scotland’s architecture is in very good heart.”
