UK architecture's biggest cash prize up for grabs in Scottish building competition

The search is on for the best building in Scotland, with the biggest cash prize in UK architecture - the RIAS Andrew Doolan Award - up for grabs.

The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) is looking for submissions of all kinds of buildings across Scotland, which 'exemplify the best of contemporary Scottish architecture'.

All types of projects are eligible for the £25,000 prize, including new build, regeneration, conservation, restoration, conversions and interiors.

The projects must have been completed between 1 January 2006 and 31 August 2007, and the panel of judges will be looking for innovation and design excellence.

Last year's winner was Page\Park Architects' Maggie's Cancer Caring Centre in Inverness (above), and this year's will be announced at a special ceremony in Edinburgh on 2 November.
