AJ Poll: should RIBA have an annual sustainability award?

Vote in the poll

RIBA sustainability award poll

Readers' comments (2)

  • All RIBA projects should be inherently sustainable and shouldn't be given awards if they're not, would you give a prize to a building that looked great but couldn't stand up? There is some merit in a focussed award for sustainability to push the boundaries. It has to be based on Post occupancy data and not on 'as designed' information.

    Unsuitable or offensive?

  • I think the RIBA should have an annual conference - it seems to me astonishing that there is no annual conference - and this would be an opporunity to showcase all awards - including one for sustainibility if appropriate. Awards are useful for promoting selection criteria and raising the profile of architects who embrace those criteria. More work needs to be done on combining good design with environmental performance - so this could be a valuable initiative.
