Haworth Tompkins' redevelopment and expansion of the Young Vic Theatre has been crowned London Building of the Year by the RIBA. The theatre was one of 63 buildings handed RIBA awards at ceremonies across the country last night (Wednesday 16 May). The RIBA National Awards will be drawn from these winners, with the eventual victors to be announced at a celebratory dinner at the London Hilton on Friday 22 June. The National Awards, along with some of the EU Awards, will form the longlist for the Stirling Prize. As well as making the Young Vic Theatre its Building of the Year, the London Region also singled out two more of its 20 award winners for special recognition: a special award goes to BAA for the Heathrow Control Tower, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners; and the English Heritage Award for a building in a historic context goes to the Roundhouse in Camden, north London, redeveloped by John McAslan + Partners.

The Roundhouse was the venue for last year's Stirling Prize, and will also be the venue for this year's prize. In total there are 63 RIBA awards for projects in Great Britain. They break down as follows:

East: 4 East Midlands: 1 London: 20 North East: 3 Northern Ireland: 3 North West: 7 Scotland: 3 South East: 4 South: 9 South West: 1 Wessex: 3 West Midlands: 4 Yorkshire: 1 Unlike last year, when Richard Rogers' Welsh Assembly made the Stirling shortlist, there were no awards for projects in Wales.
