Six Shortlisted: Buildings up for the RIBA Stirling Prize

The shortlist for the Royal Institute of British Architects (Riba) Stirling Prize has been announced. Among the nominees is the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The newly renovated building combined Elizabeth Scott’s grade II listed theatre facade and foyer with a larger theatre and a 1000 seat thrust-stage auditorium. (BBC News)

Now in its 16th year, the £20,000 award is presented to the architects of the best new European building designed, or indeed built in Britain. Last year, British architect Zaha Hadid scooped the money on her fourth attempt. This year, she has been shortlisted for south London’s Evelyn Grace Academy, planned in the shape of the letter Z.

The Olympic Velodrome is made up of three elements, which include the roof, the concourse and the plinth. Completed in January this year, it is located in east London’s Olympic Park at Stratford. It has been described as “a simple idea, beautifully and efficiently carried out”. (BBC News)

David Chipperfield is another architect who has also won the award previously. In 2007, he walked away with the prize money for the Museum of Modern Literature in Marbach am Neckar. This year, it is his crushed recycled glass clad museum in Germany’s industrial Ruhr region which is nominated. (BBC News)

An Gaelaras is a cultural centre designed to promote the use and enjoyment of the Irish language and its culture. Its location, on a landlocked site, appears on a street of Georgian and Victorian terraces in Derry. The building was only able to feature windows on one of the four sides. (BBC News)

A 1980s office block was transformed into London’s Angel Building which is situated on St John Street in Islington. The winner will be announced on 1 October at Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham and will be broadcast on a special edition of BBC TWO’s The Culture Show three days after. (BBC News)
