The Royal Institute of British Architects has announced the 2010 RIBA winners, from which the Stirling Prize honorees will be drawn.

More than 100 projects are ranked in this year's shortlist, with only nine hailing from outside the UK.

Fine arts could book most winners, ranging from the Neues Museum in Berlin to the Nottingham Contemporary. Other successful fields included educational buildings and public spaces such as the Liverpool Pierhead or the Infinity Bridge in Teesdale.

Missoni's first fashion hotel in Edinburgh fetched Allan Murray Architects an award, but by far the most successful practice was Rick Mather's, which could bag four prizes, including for the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.

Strikingly, Britain's most prominent designers were honored for buildings outside their home country, such as Zaha Hadid's Maxxi Center in Rome or David Chipperfield's City of Justice in Barcelona.
