THE Mary Rose museum has been recognised for its architectural excellence.

The building at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, which opened last year, was designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects, based in London.

The museum is one of 21 buildings in the south that have been short-listed for Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) South East 2014 Awards.

The Royal Institute of British Architects champions better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and its annual award scheme has been running since 1966.

All short-listed buildings will go before a regional jury, who will be looking for the best in architectural design.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday, May 8 at Mercedes-Benz World, Brooklands, Surrey.

Regional winners will also be considered for a highly-coveted RIBA National Award, to be announced in June.

RIBA awards are for buildings in the UK by RIBA Chartered Architects and RIBA International Fellows.
