Every project on the shortlist will be visited by the 2024 RIAS Awards jury, which is chaired by Nick Hayhurst (director, Hayhurst and Co) and also includes Simon Branson (partner architect, Honey Architecture), Catriona Hill (partner, Oberlanders Architects) and Daisy Narayanan MBE (head of placemaking and mobility, City of Edinburgh Council).

Tamsie Thomson, chief executive of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, said: “There is such a diverse and intriguing range of projects on this year’s RIAS Awards shortlist. Alongside new workplaces, homes and housing projects across the country, there’s rich variety of buildings that includes leading Scottish cultural and educational institutions, green energy infrastructure, a restaurant and even a football stand – so never let it be said that architects in Scotland cannot turn their hands to anything.

“The 2024 shortlist is undoubtedly one of the strongest for many years, and our judges have a difficult yet enjoyable task ahead of them as they prepare to visit each project and choose this year’s winners. I can’t wait to join them on the judging visits, and celebrate with the winners when the 2024 RIAS Awards are announced in June.”
