2013 RIBA National and EU Award Winners
Posted: Thursday, June 13, 2013 |

The Royal Institute of British Architects has revealed the winners of the 2013 RIBA National Awards. The shortlist for the coveted RIBA Stirling Prize for the UK's best building of the year will be drawn from the 52 RIBA National and EU Award winners (43 buildings in the UK and 9 buildings elsewhere in the EU).

This year’s award winners range from the UK’s northernmost arts center in the Shetlands down to Redruth in Cornwall. From a beautifully-crafted chapel in the back garden of an Edinburgh townhouse to the innovative yellow-roofed Ferrari Museum in Italy, from M&S’s new ‘green’ flagship store in Cheshire to the National Trust’s dynamic new visitor center at the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. Well-known ‘star’ architects and smaller architecture practices, some who have never won an RIBA award before, will now be battling it out to make it onto this year’s RIBA Stirling Prize shortlist for the best building of the year.

One-third of this year’s UK winners are exceptional education buildings, from small nursery schools to major university campuses.  Some of the last Building Schools for the Future (BSF) schools have made the grade this year with winners including St Alban’s Academy in Birmingham and Kingswood Academy in Kingston upon Hull, whose ingenious use of limited space has created exceptional and inspiring facilities for students, not to mention bully-deterring restrooms.

Though excellent projects have been delivered at the extreme ends of the scale – notably the 242-hectar Olympic master plan and a small contemporary house in the ruins of the 12th-century Astley Castle in Warwickshire - this year’s awards are revealing a notable squeezed-middle, with fewer medium-scale projects amongst the winners, both public and commercial. Many of the winners are publicly, charity or foundation funded, with only one commercial office building in the form of Quadrant 3 on Regent Street in London.

Following is a small selection of 2013 Award Winners.
