Liverpool Central Library Shortlists for RIBA Regional Award
Liverpool Central Library is among 12 buildings in the North West that have been shortlisted for RIBA Regional (Royal Institute of British Architects) Awards in 2014, from a total of 33 buildings entered in the region.
Andrew Ruffler, Regional Director of RIBA North West, welcomed the news:
“Once again the North West region has produced an incredibly strong and varied shortlist of buildings and practices. The regional jury had an extremely difficult task this year, particularly as the North West had the highest amount of projects of value £20m+ outside of London, so it is encouraging that regional practices and smaller schemes have also been recognised by the jury.”
All shortlisted buildings will be assessed by a regional jury with the winners of an RIBA Regional Award announced on the evening of Thursday 17 April from 7pm at ‘OH ME OH MY’ in Liverpool. Regional winners will also be considered for a highly-coveted RIBA National Award in recognition of their architectural excellence, which will be announced at a London event in June.
The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning buildings later in the year.
