The Royal Institute of British Architects has announced that the Jaguar Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Centre shortlist for its annual West Midlands Regional Awards.
For over 50 years the RIBA awards and prizes have championed and celebrated the best architecture in the UK and around the world. Successful projects may reflect changes and innovations in architecture, but at their core they display a commitment to designing and developing buildings and spaces for the improvement and enhancement of people’s lives.
Natalia Maximova, Chair of the Judging Panel commented:
“This year’s shortlist includes a healthy range of projects from a chapel restoration to a new car manufacturing centre, which demonstrates a high design standard across the sectors. There are some unusual takes on conservation, as well as unique building types. All are so different and all have merits worthy of a jury’s visit. The jury are now keen to meet the project teams and their clients – both well-known and newly-established names. Congratulations to them all for ensuring that the region’s architectural aspirations remain so strong.”
All shortlisted buildings will be assessed by a regional jury and the winners of RIBA West Midlands Awards will be announced on 15 May 2017 at a celebration evening at the Park Regis, Birmingham.
