WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT RIBA AWARDS

"Architecture has become so international now, so it followed that the RIBA Prize was the one to win. We were lucky enough to win it for our Gardens by the Bay project in Singapore and for the Guangzhou IFC in China. I believe that both of these have strengthened our international standing in the architectural world. "

Chris Wilkinson OBE, Wilkinson Eyre, RIBA Award winner

"Peer recognition for winning the award is something we pride ourselves on. As architects, an RIBA award is something we see as the top accolade, particularly as the standard of projects is always so high. Clients also pick up on this as they see greater recognition and interest in the buildings they have commissioned with increased publicity, income and footfall. For these reasons, an RIBA Award is always celebrated by both the architect and the client."

Graeme Dodd, Napper Architects | RIBA Award winner

"The RIBA as an institution is unequalled in terms of name recognition and attracts the best of our profession the world over. Winning a RIBA Award for our Danish Maritime Museum exposed the merits and qualities of our project to that same audience."

Bjarke Ingels, Bjarke Ingels Group | RIBA Award winner

"RIBA awards are widely recognised by both peers and clients due to their prestige. Winning did make us feel that we had landed on the architecture scene as a practice. Straight after the awards the amount of hits we had on our webpage was phenomenal. We would say that we have had increased interest, new jobs and built new relationships from winning the awards."

Mawson Kerr | RIBA Award winner
