RIBA reveals mammoth shortlist for London Awards: part 1

  • Comment

The AJ can reveal the first 42 schemes in the running for the RIBA London Awards 2017, for which a record 85 schemes were shortlisted

Part one of the London shortlist contains a number of high-profile schemes by previous Stirling Prize winners, including Herzog & de Meuron’s Tate Modern Switch House, Zaha Hadid Architect’s Winton Gallery at the Science Museum and David Chipperfield’s flagship London store for Valentino.

Other past Stirling Prize winners on the shortlist are Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Haworth Tompkins, Stanton Williams and AHMM, which has six schemes in the running, including its New Scotland Yard refurbishment. 

Also on the shortlist are the Design Museum by OMA with Allies and Morrison and John Pawson; the Francis Crick Institute by HOK with PLP Architecture; and The Layered Gallery by Gianni Botsford Architects, which was commended at the AJ Small Projects Awards.

In addition, the shortlist features schemes by Hawkins\Brown, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, BDP, Carmody Groarke, PRP, 6a, GRID, vPPR, Eric Parry, Chris Dyson, Henley Halebrown, Finkernagel Ross, Shed KM, Grimshaw and Mole Architects. 

A total of 215 schemes were entered for the London awards, up by 30 from last year. 

All the shortlisted schemes will by visited by a jury throughout April, with the winners announced at an awards ceremony at the RIBA, 66 Portland Place, on 22 May. 

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.
