The Royal Institute of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) has revealed eleven outstanding new buildings as winners of this year's two RIAS Awards – one of them being The Burrell Collection, Glasgow.

John McAslan + Partners have refurbished this internationally significant building, opening up the heart of the museum to create a three-storey atrium, unlock additional space and improve connections throughout the building. The judges praised the project as a considerate and bold re-imagining of a seminal late-20th century building, and an exemplary retrofit that will allow visitors to engage with more of the Burrell’s collections for generations to come.

The jury described this scheme as “the most significant architectural alteration that the Architects made” which opened up the centre of the building.

The winners of the RIAS Awards will become the ‘longlist’ for the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award – one of the most significant architecture prizes in the world. Recipients of the 2024 RIAS Awards are also eligible for the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) National Awards.
