A whopping 33 projects in the capital have won RIBA London Regional Awards
Some of the capital’s highest profile projects of the last year were honoured in the RIBA London Regional Awards, including Renzo Piano’s ‘omnipresent’ Shard, the ‘surprisingly delicate’ Tate Britain by Caruso St John Architects (AJ 24.01.14), and O’Donnell + Tuomey’s Saw Swee Hock Student Centre (AJ 28.02.14) – which also picked up London’s Building of the Year Award.
Haworth Tompkins bagged the most regional awards – picking up three – for its temporary theatre on the Southbank (AJ 20.06.13), the revamp of the ‘much loved’ London Library, and for the ‘thoughtful’ Clothworkers Centre at the V&A. The victories also landed the practice with the region’s Practice of the Year Award.
The last of the projects in the Olympic Park to go through the awards system – Zaha Hadid’s Aquatics Centre (AJ 18.08.11) – also bagged a gong, after its temporary wings were removed back in May 2013. But surprisingly the Stirling Prize-winner’s Serpentine Sackler Gallery (AJ 08.11.13) missed out.
The triumphant projects which also include five schools and six houses were chosen from a shortlist of 64 schemes.
Last year just 18 projects received the region’s accolades.
Regional winners will be put forward for the RIBA National Awards, with the lucky recipients announced in June.
