Many of them have won numerous prizes, such as Allies and Morrison
with 4 awards, Hawkins/Brown (3 awards), BDP (3 awards), Niall Mclaughlin Architects (4) and Penoyre & Prasad (3).
According to RIBA President Sunand Prasad the prize indicates the state of British architecture and the results are encouraging, as the projects maintain a high level in terms of both quality and quantity. Another positive indicator is the greater number of school and hospital buildings.
The 103 winning projects will be subject to a further selection for the RIBA Stirling Prize, to be presented in collaboration with The Architects' Journal and Crystal Digital Technology on October 17 to the architects who made the most important contribution to British architecture in the past year.
