Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award Shortlist

Shortlist Announced for the UK’s Richest Architectural Prize
The 2009 shortlist for the UK.s richest architectural prize – The RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award – has been announced. From 28 submissions which ranged from Dumfries & Galloway to Rosshire the judges, chaired by Professor Andrew MacMillan, have shortlisted eleven projects. The shortlisted projects represent a comprehensive range of building types and include two restoration projects and buildings within both urban and landscape settings.

RIAS President, David Dunbar, is serving on the judging panel along with Ian Gilzean ARIAS, Prof. Kathryn Findlay and Ian Ritchie CBE. The President commented:

“Shortlisting eleven out of this year’s varied and excellent submissions was no easy task. Scotland is enjoying a creative renaissance and that is undoubtedly true of its architecture. This year’s entries range throughout the length and breadth of Scotland and our shortlist reflects the high standards which are being achieved in every contemporary building type and in restoration. Selecting just one winner will challenge our judging panel, all of whom will be visiting all of the shortlisted schemes. I am confident that we will be making an award which respects the belief of the late Andy Doolan that Scotland’s uniqueness is reflected in very special architecture. The superb quality of this year’s submissions justifies the confidence of Scotland’s Government which has also given generous support to this, the premier, Scottish architectural prize”.
