SCHOOLS UP FOR ARCHITECTURE AWARDS
Regional jury to assess five buildings in county for RIBA south awards
TWO Bucks schools are among five buildings in the county that have been shortlisted in a competition that celebrates architecture.
Thirty-two buildings have been shortlisted for Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) South 2016 Awards.
There were 64 buildings pit forward in the region, which covers Bucks, Berkshire, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Middlesex and Oxfordshire.
Davenies School, in Beaconsfield, and The Little Hall, Prestwood Infants School, in Prestwood, have been shortlisted.
The other three buildings shortlisted in Bucks are Lower Vicar’s Studio Barn, in Wormsley, a property only described as House 19 in Bucks and a private house.
All shortlisted buildings will be assessed by a regional jury with the winning buildings announced at an awards evening and reception at Ascot Racecourse on Thursday April 28.
Regional award winners will be considered for a highly-coveted RIBA National Award in recognition of their architectural excellence, the results of which will be announced in June.
The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year will be drawn from the RIBA National Awardwinning buildings later in the year.
The RIBA Awards have run continuously since 1966 and are judged and presented locally.
