Twenty-three buildings and an entire urban district for Cambridge make up the shortlist for this year’s RIBA East regional awards
Last year’s 19-strong shortlist featured two buildings in the University of Cambridge’s new urban extension, including MUMA’s Stirling Prize 2018 nominee, Storey’s Field Centre and Eddington Nursery.
Now AECOM’s wider masterplan for the development – officially North West Cambridge’s Eddington masterplan – has been nominated for a regional gong.
Other projects on the list include Black Barn by Studio Bark and Goldsmith Street social housing by Mikhail Riches with Cathy Hawley, both recently featured in the AJ.
The winners will be announced at an awards celebration at Downing College, Cambridge on Thursday 9 May, hosted by RIBA East regional chair Tom Foggin and RIBA president-elect Alan Jones.
RIBA East director Louise Todd said: ‘The range of projects clearly demonstrates the many specialist skills that practices can offer, from conservation work and reimagining outdated buildings through to designing highly energy-efficient, one-off homes and social housing.’
All shortlisted buildings will be visited by a regional jury over the next month.
Regional winners will then be put forward for the RIBA National Awards, with the successful recipients announced in July. Those collecting national awards will then be considered for the RIBA Stirling Prize shortlist.
