The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) has announced an 18 strong shortlist for its 2020 awards (from 80 entries).
"I am pleased to announce that we are seeking candidates for President to lead the RIAS in 2020-21 alongside 5 RIAS Council Incorporation Representatives.
The nominations process is now open. Please don’t be shy about putting yourself forward or suggesting candidates for these roles.
There has never been a more vital time for the RIAS members to be active in Scotland’s conversations about architecture and the built environment.
