The V&A Museum is one of 61 London buildings to receive RIBA London Awards 2018 from the Royal Institute of British Architects.

The V&A’s Museum Exhibition Road Quarter and its Members’ room are both in contention for the coveted RIBA London Awards, which celebrates skilful, accomplished architecture in the capital. Another K&C finalist is Marlborough Primary School by the Dixon Jones Practice.

The winning buildings will now be in the running for the RIBA National Awards that will be announced on 21 June 2018.

RIBA London Director, Dian Small, said: “London has perhaps the highest concentration of design talent found anywhere in the world. It is that concentration of diverse talent, skills, and exchange of ideas that makes London such an exciting and challenging place to work in the field of architecture.

It’s testament to the drive and passion of our members that again, we have seen the largest ever number of schemes shortlisted for the RIBA London Awards. Our members are building more – and better – buildings than ever before; constantly enhancing the landscape and skyline of our region.”
