Speaking about the shortlist RIBA President Jane Duncan said: “The RIBA Stirling Prize is awarded to the building that has made the biggest contribution to the evolution of architecture in a given year.
“This year’s shortlisted schemes show exceptionally creative, beautifully considered and carefully detailed buildings that have made every single penny count. Commissioned at the end of the recession, they are an accolade to a creative profession at the top of its game. Each of these outstanding projects has transformed their local area and delights those who are lucky enough to visit, live, study or work in them.”
Last year the prize was awarded to the Newport Street Gallery by Caruso St John architects, which is owned by artist Damian Hirst. Past winners include Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster and Haworth Tompkins.
