RIBA regional Building of the Year 2022 winners announced

See which buildings were awarded 2022 RIBA Building of the Year in each region.

26 May 2022

Ten projects have been announced as winners of the 2022 RIBA Building of the Year Award in their respective regions.

RIBA President, Simon Allford said: 

“Winning a regional Building of the Year Award is a major achievement. Across the country projects have been selected for this accolade because they are exemplars of the very best of innovative, intelligent and delightful design. The results of positive collaboration between architect and client, and design team and contractor, they demonstrate that high quality, sustainable architecture can positively impact the lives of the people that engage with it. My warmest congratulations to all those involved.”   

The RIBA regional Building of the Year Awards were presented at a ceremony at the RIBA’s Headquarters in London on Tuesday evening. 

All RIBA Regional Award winners will now be considered for a highly-coveted RIBA National Award in recognition of their architectural excellence, which will be announced in June. The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning projects later in the year. 

The RIBA regional Building of the Year awards are sponsored by Taylor Maxwell.
