The Royal Institute of British Architects is gathering tonight to preview the RIBA Stirling Prize 2018 shortlist. The annual awards celebrate the best buildings in the UK, the vast majority of which OS surveys and adds to the master map of Great Britain. We’re wondering if our surveyor Tim Glasswell will complete a hat trick and find he has surveyed the winning building once more…
Tim works in our East of England team and has surveyed two buildings in Cambridge which have previously won the national RIBA Stirling Prize – the Sainsbury’s Laboratory (at the University Botanic Garden) in 2012 and the Accordia development in 2008. From this year’s shortlist, Tim and colleague Howard Boyer, surveyed the Storey’s Field Centre and Eddington Nursery, University of Cambridge.
Last week saw the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), reveal the winners of the RIBA Awards for London 2011. The awards ceremony at the V&A museum also saw three special London awards, with the Chiswick Park Café by Caruso St John taking the region’s top honour as the RIBA London Building of the Year Supported by BLP Insurance. In addition, The Olympic Delivery Authority for the London 2012 Velodrome by Hopkins Architects Partnership LLP won the Design for London Client of the Year Award.
Ordnance Survey was a sponsor for the awards and for the third year running we produced a new Ordnance Survey RIBA Awards for London map which details all the winning schemes across London. The map is mailed to RIBA members and is also available free from the RIBA London office.
