The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has 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 projects.

The event invites people to explore those crowned as the UK’s best, which include the restored Battersea Arts Centre and the Hollis Building in Sheffield.

You can expect plenty of 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  winner.

“This year’s RIBA Awards have seen an exceptional range of projects, showcasing the UK’s great architectural ambition, innovation and skill,” RIBA President Ben Derbyshire said. “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 to November 2019.
