All six RIBA Client of Year 2009 finalists named joint winners

The RIBA has made the unprecedented move of presenting its Client of the Year 2009 award to all six on the shortlist

The institute hailed the move as a ‘positive decision in an exceptional year, which produced some remarkable clients’ and added that it wanted to ‘celebrate the achievements of all six in the same way’.

For the past 11 years the RIBA has recognised the role of good clients in the delivery of ‘fine architecture’ with its special RIBA Client of the Year award – an accolade that is judged based on visits to the schemes and meetings with the nominated clients.

The winners were announced and presented with their awards by Richard Hastilow CBE, RIBA Chief Executive.
