President's Medals 2019 Exhibition at RIBA North

​The annual RIBA President's Medals exhibition showcases the talent of students, nominated by schools of architecture across the globe for the RIBA Bronze, Silver, and Dissertation Medals. These are widely regarded as the most prestigious awards in architectural education worldwide.

Awarded annually since 1836, the RIBA President's Medals are regarded as the oldest and most prestigious long-standing awards in the world for architectural education.

Every year, students aspire to be nominated by their schools to submit their writings or design proposals for the President’s Medals, and for the opportunity for their work to be recognised and publicly exhibited. The 410 schools of architecture are located in 80 countries across the globe, and each can nominate up to two entries for the Bronze Medal; up to two for the Silver Medal, and one for the Dissertation Medal.

Coinciding with the public announcement of the winners on 4 December, the exhibition including the award-winning entries, as well as a diverse selection of design proposals created by students, was opened at RIBA 66 Portland Place before coming to RIBA North. 

Please note: the exhibition is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm.
