Kuma and RSHP shortlisted for Scotland’s best new building award

  • Comment

Kengo Kuma’s V&A Dundee and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ (RSHP) Macallan Distillery have been named among the projects vying for the title of Scotland’s best new building

The £80 million waterfront museum and RSHP’s Stirling Prize contender are joined by five other schemes on the shortlist for the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award.

Also listed are projects by Reiach and Hall, which won the award last year with the archive for the civil nuclear industry in Wick, Collective Architecture, Simpson & Brown and Elder and Cannon Architects.
However, this year the victorious practice will take home less money than the previous 17 winners – the first prize having dropped from £25,000 to £10,000 – though it still remains the ’richest’ architecture award in the UK.

The buildings will be visited at the end of September and judged against a range of criteria including ’architectural integrity; usability and context; delivery and execution; and sustainability’.

This year’s jury will be chaired by dRMM’s Sadie Morgan alongside judges Henry McKeown of jm architects and Mona Siddiqui.

The winner will be announced at the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh on 4 October.
