RIBA South East Jury Chair Chris Williamson, Founding Partner of Weston Williamson + Partners, said:  

“The quality of projects in the South region this year is as high as ever. Whether it was residential, mixed-used, culture or leisure facilities, they provide a fantastic snapshot of what’s possible with vision and collaboration. The projects sensitivity to their surroundings and users' needs must also be commended. 

“I think I can speak for all of the judging panel in saying how excited and privileged we are to undertake these visits.”

The RIBA Regional Awards shortlists for 2024 will be announced from 8 to 23 February. Check back throughout this period for shortlist publications.

All projects shortlisted for RIBA Regional Awards will be visited by a regional jury, and the winning projects will be announced later this spring.

The winners will then be considered for several RIBA Special Awards, including the RIBA Sustainability Award (sponsored by Autodesk) and RIBA Building of the Year (sponsored by EH Smith), before being considered for a highly coveted RIBA National Award, which will be announced in summer.

The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize – the UK’s best new building – will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning projects, and announced in September. The Stirling Prize winner will be announced in October.
