Big prizes and great press for Ian Ritchie Architects

Ian Ritchie Architects' work at the Royal Academy of Music has been garnering awards and getting great coverage in the architectural and national press.

It was joint winner of London Building of the Year at the RIBA London Awards and also won a RIBA National Award. It won best Culture and Community building at the New London Awards and is shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival Awards 2018.

The project was covered by Architecture Today and featured on the front cover. A nice double page-spread in the AJ's feature on the RIBA National Awards. And top billing in a BBC article on "Eight architectural treasures from RIBA awards".

Congratulations to all the team and let's hope the momentum keeps on growing...

Sainsbury Wellcome Centre, UCL by Ian Ritchie Architects

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour is a research centre of University College London.

I was in the area at dusk last night, and enjoyed watching it reflect the colours of the busy streets and darkening sky.
