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.
