“The United kingdom is blighted by bad-top quality new housing and dilapidated college buildings, so I am delighted that the notable trends amongst this year’s RIBA National Award-winners are the volume of inspiring new housing and education projects,” stated RIBA President Stephen Hodder.
“I am particularly pleased to award an unprecedented variety of housing developments,” he continued. “The modern spirit of these tasks sets them apart from the ubiquitous, uninspiring housing developments becoming created all above the country. Our award winners demonstrate it is attainable to construct exceptional new housing developments that are worthwhile, sustainable and desirable spots to reside.”

He went to make clear how he believes well-developed college buildings have the electrical power to inspire students and teachers.
“This does not mean each new school demands to be a show-stopper, but we should make certain that worth for funds and the ideal feasible design go hand in hand,” he stated.
