RIBA Stirling Prize Awards
Kingston University London – Town House designed by Grafton Architects - winner of the 25th RIBA Stirling Prize.
Our Directors were delighted to attending last night's RIBA Stirling Prize Awards. This is the UK's most prestigious architecture award given to the architect of the building thought to be the most significant of the year for the evolution of architecture and the built environment. Architects must be RIBA members. The event took place in Coventy Cathedral, the 2021 UK City of Culture. It was live on BBC News Channel from 7.30pm and BBC Radio 4’s Front Row.
Founded in 1996, it is the Royal Institute of British Architects Stirling Prize for excellence in architecture named after architect James Stirling.
Six shortlisted buildings are chosen from a long-list of buildings that have received a RIBA National Award. These awards are given to buildings showing "high architectural standards and substantial contribution to the local environment".
This year’s contenders are: 15 Clerkenwell Close by GROUPWORK, Cambridge Central Mosque by Marks Barfield Architects, Key Worker Housing, Eddington, Cambridge by Stanton Williams, Kingston University London by Grafton Architects, Tintagel Castle Footbridge by Ney & Partners and William Matthews Associates and Windermere Jetty Museum by Carmody Groarke
