Keith Williams is pleased to announce that he has been invited to chair the judging of the Glasgow Institute of Architects Awards 2017 as guest head judge of the awards panel.
Founded in 1868, the Glasgow Institute of Architects is the largest of the six Chapters of RIAS and is the oldest of Scotland’s architectural associations. The annual design awards which were established in 1979, recognise excellence in architecture created by Chapter members. The annual GIA Awards are recognised at local and national level and are one of the main highlights of the annual GIA programme.
Eligible projects can be designed by GIA registered architects across Scotland or by other architects within the wider Glasgow region and encompass 6 categories :
Small Works (under £250,000)
59 awards were submitted for the 2017 round, and the judging process is underway.
The Supreme Award winner, Awards winners and Commendations will be announced in Glasgow on Friday 11 November at the GIA Annual Members Dinner at Oran Mor (originally Kelvinside Parish Church 1862 by J.J. Stevenson) a gothic building with a series of extraordinary more recent ceiling paintings undertaken during the restoration of 2002-2004 by the Glasgow-born writer and artist Alasdair Gray.
