Seventeen projects across the East of England have been shortlisted for this year's RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) awards for the region.

The RIBA East Awards 2024 celebrate architecture that creates "characterful places of lasting value".

Nominations include buildings in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.

Those on the shortlist will be visited by a regional jury, and the winners will be announced this spring.

The winners of regional awards will then be considered for several RIBA Special Awards, including the RIBA Sustainability Award and RIBA Building of the Year, before being considered for the National Award, which will be announced in the summer.

Chairman of RIBA East's jury, Gavin Henderson, said: "The diverse range of projects shortlisted this year reflects the breadth of architectural talent and the ambition of clients working across the region.

"It is particularly encouraging to see schemes that embrace high levels of sustainability, while also focusing on enhancing the experience and wellbeing of their occupants.

"These are projects that respond with ingenuity to contemporary challenges and their unique contexts, creating characterful places of lasting value."
