RIBA President Ben Derbyshire said: "This shortlist illustrates why UK architects and architecture are held in such high regard around the world.
"Years of thoughtful design, collaborative working and a desire to nurture the human spirit has resulted in six buildings of real integrity and purpose. I am sure they will continue to inspire those who experience them, for decades to come."
