RIBA president Jane Duncan, said that the award winners exemplify current trends in the industry: “The RIBA National Awards are a great indicator of U.K. design, economic and construction trends. One standout trend from this year’s crop of winners is the huge scale of investment and ambition shown by many of the U.K.’s universities and colleges; almost one quarter of the winning projects (11 buildings) are in this category.”
