RIBA announced its favourite UK buildings of 2015

The 37 winners of the 2015 RIBA National Awards announced by the Royal Institute of British Architects.

This year’s list of winners comprises 29 in England, five in Scotland, two from Northern Ireland and one in Wales. Fourteen of the buildings are in London, including three housing developments, two schools, Foyles bookshop and the National Theatre.

RIBA President Stephen Hodder said: “The admirable aspect shared by every one of our winners is ambition.”

“The UK is blighted by poor-quality new housing and dilapidated school buildings, so I am delighted that the notable trends amongst this year’s RIBA National Award winners are the volume of inspiring new housing and education projects.

Below is a variety of this year’s winners from across the nation. New entry to Sheffield Cathedral, by Thomas Ford & Partners, is created in rock and also stainless-steel High cliff Property in Southgate, Wales, is explained as”a reasonable item of domestic style that is exemplary in both process and existence”.
