On Wednesday Peter Clegg, senior partner at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Chair of the RIBA Awards jury, announced that the Institute is currently holding discussions about introducing a 'test of time' award, reports the Architects' Journal.

Though the details are yet to be finalized, buildings would be eligible for the award 10 years after their original completion, and would be judged upon "sustainability performance in-use, the robustness of materials, and how users inhabit the building". This is a welcome change, as current sustainability awards rely heavily on predicted performances, which are often unreliable indicators of a building's true performance.
