THE ROYAL Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has today (Thursday 1 August) announced the programme for Great British Buildings 2019, which gives members of the public a rare chance to look around some of this year’s RIBA award-winning buildings.

From London’s restored Battersea Arts Centre, to the historic Hollis Building in Sheffield, Great British Buildings invites people to explore the buildings crowned the UK’s best.

RIBA will be hosting talks, tours and unique opportunities to meet the architects as they reveal the stories behind their buildings, what inspired them and what makes their project a RIBA Award-winner.

Commenting on the programme, RIBA President Ben Derbyshire said: ​“This year’s RIBA Awards have seen an exceptional range of projects, showcasing the UK’s great architectural ambition, innovation and skill. We’re really pleased to give the public this rare chance to go behind the scenes and see first-hand what makes each building so special, with the return of our Great British Buildings programme.”

Great British Buildings 2019 will run from September – November 2019. View the full programme here.
