RIBA South/South East Director, James Robinson, welcomed the news:
"The buildings shortlisted this year are a celebration of the best in building design in the region. They show the diligence, perseverance and talent of all the practices involved on projects large and small and across all sectors.

The RIBA Awards are judged by visiting each shortlisted project in person. In line with current advice to prevent the spread of illness, judging of all RIBA Awards for buildings is postponed. Provided it is safe to do so, we hope to resume judging in due course and to conclude the awards programme in the second half of this year.
Regional Award winners will be considered for a highly-coveted RIBA National Award in recognition of their architectural excellence. The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize, the best new building of the year, will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning buildings and the Stirling Prize winner will be announced after this.
