GALLERY | Shortlist announced for 2022 RIBA North West Awards

Highlighting the best architectural gems in the region, the shortlist includes 10 projects from Manchester, Liverpool, Salford, Lancaster, Penrith and Carlisle.

Among the shortlisted buildings are those designed by Manchester-based studios Tim Groom Architects, Hodder + Partners, and OMI Architects. The list was decided by a jury of architects and architecture experts.

“The 10 projects shortlisted in the North West this year represent a wide range of typologies and geographic coverage,” said RIBA North West jury chair Hazel Rounding. “The quality of the schemes submitted by a variety of exceptional architects stimulated some interesting debate amongst the panel.

“It is however the integrated ability to embrace environmental consciousness no matter what the scale, budget or timing of design that ties the shortlist together and endorses their contribution to region, community and profession.”

The shortlisted projects are:

  • Blossom Street, Manchester by Tim Groom Architects
  • Grosvenor East Building at Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester by Allies and Morrison
  • Health Innovation One at Lancaster University, Lancaster by John McAslan + Partners
  • Lancaster Castle, Lancaster by BDP
  • Pooley New Bridge, Penrith by Knight Architects
  • Special Exhibitions Gallery at Science and Industry Museum, Manchester by Carmody Groarke
  • The Fratry, Carlisle by Feilden Fowles
  • The Old Library, Liverpool by OMI Architects
  • The Welcome Building, RHS Garden Bridgewater, Salford by Hodder and Partners
  • Two New Bailey Square, Salford by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris

The winners of the regional awards will be announced in spring. Those winners will then be in the running for a RIBA National Award and the acclaimed Stirling Prize, which goes to the best building of the year.
