The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA East) has announced that 14 innovative local buildings have beaten off stiff competition from 43 new or restored buildings in the East of England to make it onto the shortlist for the RIBA Awards and the RIBA Conservation Awards.
An Awards jury will visit all 14 projects, revealing some of the finest architectural designs and innovative schemes in the region, during April. Those selected for RIBA Awards at this stage are then in the running for the Stirling Prize 2005.
Only 70 or so new buildings are given RIBA Awards each year. The winners will be announced at the RIBA Awards Dinner in London on 17 June 2005.
