The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is a professional membership body based in London and Liverpool. Established in 1834, the purpose of the organisation is to advance and promote the arts and sciences connected with civil architecture in the UK. The organisation presents a number of awards annually, including the Stirling Prize and the Royal Gold Medal for architecture.
