The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) has begun the 2007 search for the best building in Scotland, with the launch of this year's RIAS Andrew Doolan Award. With a prize of £25,000, it is one of the most significant architecture awards in the world.
Originally established in 2002, this prestigious award was renamed the RIAS Andrew Doolan Award in 2004 following the untimely death of its founder and patron, the architect Andrew Doolan. RIAS is looking for submissions of all kinds of buildings across Scotland – public and private, large or small – which exemplify the best of contemporary Scottish architecture and building design.
Entries can be submitted by the architect, client or user. The winner will be announced at a presentation ceremony on 2 November in Edinburgh.
