The RIAS Awards 2019

Now in their eighth year, the combined RIAS/RIBA Awards continue to demonstrate the quality and breadth of current architectural endeavour in Scotland. This year’s winners include a number of major new-build projects, alongside adaptations and extensions of existing properties and innovative single dwellings. Scotland’s architecture continues to be of exemplary quality.

Judging took place at the end of April and the winners were announced at a dinner at the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh on 30th May. The RIBA National Awards were announced on 27th June.

Prof. John Cole CBE Hon FRIAS, Jury Chair, commented:

“The journey to view the nineteen shortlisted projects, which, within a hectic but rewarding three-day period, took my fellow judges and myself through the intriguing Scottish borders, the self-confident central belt, and the glorious landscapes of the highlands and islands, was for all of us a reaffirmation of the fundamental importance of the ability of architecture at its best to positively influence the lives of individuals and communities.”
