AJ100 Awards: Building of the Year shortlist announced

The AJ can reveal the six buildings in the running for its 2016 Building of the Year Award

A research institute in London by Allies and Morrison, a thatch-clad building at the University of East Anglia by Architype and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ striking red arts school in Plymouth have all been shortlisted for this year’s prize.

Also on the list is a new city hall in Buenos Aires by last year’s AJ120 chart-topper Foster + Partners, a riverside college campus in Glasgow by Reaich + Hall and Michael Laird Architects, and an £80 million library at the University of Oxford by Wilkinson Eyre.

The coveted award is given in recognition of the finest building completed by an AJ100-listed practice in 2015.

The winner will be announced at the annual AJ100 dinner on 8 June at the Tower of London.
