The RIAS Awards 2013

The second RIAS Awards again prompted a brilliant response. No fewer than 75 submissions were received. The judges had to select their shortlist from projects ranging from modest house extensions to multi-million pound educational and cultural buildings. Entries ranged from throughout Scotland and the judge’s shortlist of 25 includes projects from Melrose to Lerwick.

We are very grateful to all the entrants who have sanguinely adopted an “...it’s the taking part” attitude.

as most architects are well aware, every opportunity for promotion comes with the little glimmer of hope that somebody might see
something they like. Commissions sometimes arise from the unlikeliest of sources.

The judges for this year’s awards are rias President Elect iain Connelly Frias, Dr Joyce Deans CBE PPrias, Lori McElroy MBE of sUsT., Kathy Li of the Mackintosh school of architecture and roger stephenson OBE, representing the royal institute of British architects. We are grateful to Forestry Commission scotland, Wood for Good, Historic scotland and Zero Waste scotland for their generous support of our special awards.
