Please note that The Lighthouse will be closed from 17:00 on 24 December until Wednesday 4 January 2017.
An exhibition featuring the winning and shortlisted entries in the 2016 RIAS Doolan Award for Architecture will be on show on Level 2 at The Lighthouse. The exhibition features the winning project The Saunders Centre, Glasgow by Page\Park Architects and the commended and shortlisted projects.
The RIAS Doolan Award for Architecture was established in 2002. Its objective is clear, to find and celebrate the best buildings in Scotland. The architects of the winning building will receive £25,000, making this both the largest architectural prize in the UK and one of the most significant architecture awards in the world. The award was renamed the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award in 2004 in memory of its founder and patron, the inspired architect /developer Andy Doolan, who died in April of that year. The award would not exist without his extraordinary generosity and vision. Andy’s family have kindly agreed to continue this support. The Scottish Government also supports the award to promote and celebrate the best standards of design in Scotland.
