The Royal Institute of British Architects has revealed the shortlist for this year’s Stirling Prize, now in its 22nd year.
Six projects, chosen from regional winners, have been selected to be in the running for the coveted prize, which recognises the building that has made the greatest contribution to British architecture in the past year.
The RIBA Stirling Prize is judged against a range of criteria including design vision; innovation and originality; capacity to stimulate, engage and delight occupants and visitors; accessibility and sustainability; how fit the building is for its purpose and the level of client satisfaction.
“This year’s shortlisted schemes show exceptionally creative, beautifully considered and carefully detailed buildings that have made every single penny count,” said RIBA president Jane Duncan.
The winner of the Stirling Prize will be announced on 31 October at the Roundhouse, London.
