61 London buildings awarded for architectural excellence

15 May 2018

14 housing schemes, 8 schools, a city farm (Waterloo Community Farm) and refurbished public house (The Sekforde) are among the 61 buildings to receive RIBA London Awards 2018 from the Royal Institute of British Architects.

RIBA London Award-winning buildings set the standard for skilful, accomplished architecture in the capital. The winning buildings will now be in the running for highly coveted RIBA National Awards which will be announced on 21 June 2018.

RIBA London Director, Dian Small, said: “London has perhaps the highest concentration of design talent found anywhere in the world. It is that concentration of diverse talent, skills, and exchange of ideas that makes London such an exciting and challenging place to work in the field of architecture. It’s testament to the drive and passion of our members that again, we have seen the largest ever number of schemes shortlisted for the RIBA London Awards. Our members are building more – and better – buildings than ever before; constantly enhancing the landscape and skyline of our region.”
