Speaking today, Sunand Prasad, RIBA President, said: 'The RIBA Lubetkin Prize has been building up in its first four years towards the extraordinary shortlist we see today. Contenders for the 2009 Prize include some of the biggest projects in the world – and how good it is to be able to mark the British contribution in such schemes - but also some beautifully crafted and lower cost schemes of an equal architectural ambition. As judges we have an tough job to pick a winner. The shortlist has undoubtedly been enhanced by the addition of a couple of those projects that once would have got away: those by European RIBA members building in European countries other than the UK. I am delighted we are partnering this year with UK Trade and Investment to demonstrate the importance of British architecture in an international context.'

The RIBA International Awards are for practices based outside the UK, building anywhere outside the UK; or for British based practices working outside the EU.

The six shortlisted buildings have been visited by Sunand Prasad, RIBA President, Paul Monaghan, Chair of the RIBA Awards Group and Tony Chapman, RIBA Head of Awards. They will report to the full jury which includes architect Farshid Moussavi and Tom Dyckhoff of The Times. Berthold Lubetkin's daughter Sasha will present the winner of the Lubetkin Prize with a unique bronze plaque, based loosely on Lubetkin's design for the Penguin Pool at London Zoo. It has been commissioned by the RIBA and designed and made by the artist Petr Weigl.
