RIBA North East Chair, Tim Bailey welcomed the news saying:

“I am really delighted that this RIBA Regional Awards shortlist by itself showcases the excellent breadth of architect’s work in the North East. The inclusion of new build, conservation and refurbishment work, projects at large and small scales and in urban, suburban and rural settings illustrates the value and impact that great design can bring to any setting and all communities. It is a particular pleasure to see younger and emerging practices make the shortlist alongside some of the household names. Congratulations to all practices making the shortlist and look forward to seeing you at the Awards Evening in May.”
All shortlisted buildings will be assessed by a regional jury and the winning buildings will be announced at the RIBA North East Awards evening and reception on Thursday 24 May at The Museum Gardens, York. The event will be hosted by Harry Gration who presents ‘Look North’ on BBC One,Yorkshire.
