    Staff at the Green Building Press offices in West Wales have been celebrating some exciting news. Both volumes of the most recent Green Building Bible have reached the shortlist, of only 6 books, for the RIBA's International Book Awards under the Construction section!

    The awards are judged in two categories: The annual RIBA International Book Awards aim to highlight the rising influence and standard of architectural writing and publishing. They celebrate the important contribution writing makes to the dynamic activity of creating buildings and transforming the landscape in which we live.

    The Sir Robert McAlpine International Book Award for Construction recognises exceptional writing on the construction and restoration of buildings, building design and building methods, and the use of new
    materials and technologies across the construction industry.

    The Sir Nikolaus Pevsner International Book Award for Architecture recognises outstanding writing on architecture and architectural practice, the preservation of buildings, historic and theoretical research and analysis.

    The Shortlist for The Sir Robert McAlpine International Book Award for Construction currently includes the following titles..

    Building Renaissance Venice: Patrons, Architects and Builders, by Richard J.Goy. Yale University Press.

    Infrastructure, by Brian Hayes. W.W.Norton

    Smart Materials in Architecture, Interior Architecture and Design, by Axel Ritter. Birkhäuser Verlag.

    Stone Conservation: Principles and Practice, by Ed: Alison Henry. Donhead Publishing.

    Strategies for Sustainable Architecture, by Paola Sassi. Taylor and Francis.

    The Green Building Bible [2 volumes], by Ed: Keith Hall et al. (Vol 1) Richard Nichols et al. (Vol 2) Green Building Press.

    There is also a green title in the Nicolaus Pevsner Award list - Ten Shades of Green: Architecture and the Natural World, by Peter Buchanan. W.W.Norton.

    The results of the competition will be announced in the Summer edition of the Green Building Magazine and the award ceremony will take place in London on May 23rd.
