Chair of the Grand Jury, Richard Rogers welcomed the inclusion of the new prize into the institute’s ranks, “I’m delighted to lead the jury for the inaugural RIBA International Prize, and look forward to discovering how architecture is reacting to and resolving issues posed by the changing demands of a global community. We look forward to establishing the RIBA International Prize as a new standard by which to assess and promote design excellence on a global scale.”
