RIBA East Midlands Chair, Nils Feldmann, welcomed the news:

“In light of the challenges of the past two years, it’s fantastic to see eight projects shortlisted for the RIBA East Midlands 2022 Awards. The quality and range of the schemes selected, including two designed by regionally based practices, is testament to the skill and determination of the architects involved.”
