For 50 years the RIBA awards and prizes have championed and celebrated the best architecture in the UK and around the world, no matter the form; size or budget.

Successful projects reflect changes and innovations in architecture, but at their core display a commitment to designing and developing buildings and spaces for the improvement and enhancement of people’s lives.

The 2016 awards’ winners included Alder Hey Chidren’s Hospital for a multitude of awards, including the RIBA National Award 2016, RIBA North West Building of the year 2016 and RIBA North West sustainability award 2016.

Other winners included an incredible blue 3-dimensionally curved painted structural steel skinned Drawing Studio for Arts University Bournemouth winning the RIBA NATIONAL AWARD 2016 and the RIBA SOUTH WEST award 2016, and Home, a centre for international contemporary art, theatre and film, commissioned by Manchester City Council.
