Three Nottingham projects have been listed for the Royal Institute of British Architects East Midlands Awards 2024. The shortlist for this year’s award includes the Dryden Enterprise Centre by Evans Vettori, The Island Quarter by Jestico + Whiles and 2050 Homes Nottingham Phases 1-2 by Studio Partington.
Other nominations on the shortlist include Alfreton Park Community Special School in Derbyshire, Contemporary County House in Northamptonshire and Kingsfield Ponds in Lincolnshire. RIBA East Midlands Jury Chair Ian Bramwell , Director of Mole Architects, said “The East Midlands shortlist covers an exciting range of projects.
“From a house sensitively crafted to meet the very particular needs of their clients, innovative design solutions to tackle the climate emergency and creatively respond to the cost-of-living crisis, as well as breathing new life into an urban area, there’s a fantastic range which shows the positive potential of architecture to enhance our lives.”
All of the projects shortlisted will be visited by a regional jury, ahead of the winning projects being announced later this spring. The winners will then be considered for several awards, including the RIBA Sustainability Award and RIBA Building of the Year, before being considered for a highly coveted RIBA National Award, which will be announced over the summer.
Then in September, the UK’s best new building will be announced, followed by the Stirling Prize winner being announced in October.
