What is the best new building in the country? The Royal Institute of British Architects has set out to find just that.
The 49 winners include a vertical pier, a biomass power plant, school buildings, libraries, a social housing development, many museums and a remembrance centre.
RIBA President Jane Duncan said that the awards “provide insight into emerging design trends, as well as showing how well the profession responds to economic drivers. I am delighted to see such confident, innovative and ambitious architecture delivered in such challenging times.”
Here are some of the best buildings, as nominated by Riba.
