The has announced that the Lubetkin Prize, awarded annually for the past thirteen years to the architects of the “best new building” outside the European Union, is to be replaced with the new “international prize” in 2015. As a result, there will be no RIBA International Awards or Lubetkin Prize awarded in 2014. According to the RIBA, ”the Lubetkin Prize has been a useful platform to highlight the work of RIBA members around the world. We are currently working on creating a prize that has even greater international impact and look forward to announcing more details in the future.” The Lubetkin Prize’s last recipients were Wilkinson Eyre and Grant Associates for Cooled ConservatoriesGardens by the Bay in Singapore.
