Aim & Objectives
The Stirling Society of Architects Design Awards have been established with the aim to recognise and promote the creation of good architecture and good design generally – to recognise architects, and clients, who have collaborated in the creation of well designed buildings and to encourage others .
In particular, the awards seek to recognise some of the excellent work created by local architects and created within the Stirling Chapter area comprising Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire areas. Entries are accepted from any Chartered Architect throughout Scotland who has completed a building in the Chapter area.
The award has initially been established to recognise the best building in the chapter area with other projects of exceptional merit being awarded commendations.
The winner of the Chapter Design Award is granted automatic free entry to the annual RIAS Doolan Prize, an award that carries a £25,000 prize.
The judging process follows a procedure where the three judges, generally the President of the RIAS, Professor Andy MacMillan one of Scotland’s most celebrated living architects and a joint winner of RIAS’s inaugural “Lifetime Achievement Award” and the SSA Chapter President initially meet to consider all of the award entries on the basis of the photographic, drawn and other information submitted accompanying the entries. From this initial discussion and appraisal there follows a visit to the shortlisted entries in order to decide on the eventual winner.
