In 2016, The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) launches its first international architecture award. The aim is to reward the “most significant and inspirational building of the year”. This building will have to be exemplary in terms of innovation, construction and integration in its environment, but should also have a social positive impact on its neighbourhood. The jury will be composed of a panel of experts chaired by renowned architect Sir Richard Rogers. In addition to the RIBA International Prize, the Riba International Emerging Architect Prize will reward exceptional work by architects under 40. The application deadline for both of these prizes is on 9th February.
This event is an occasion for L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui to pull out some past publications on architecture and urban planning in the United Kingdom. Every week until March 18th, a selection of “Made in UK” articles previously published in AA from issue #386 (November 2011) to issue #410 (December 2015) will be available. Full-length reports on renowned architects such as David Chipperfield, Farshid Moussavi or Assemble, as well as portraits of young offices to discover and UK based projects will be published online.
This “Made in UK” series starts with a focus on Ash Sakula office, rewarded several times by the RIBA and published in issue #406 in May 2015.
