RIBA unveils Stirling Prize shortlist

22nd July 2010

Zaha Hadid Architects has been named as the favourite to win the prestigious Stirling Prize 2010.

Confirming the shortlist for the GBP 20,000 award, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) revealed that Rome's MAXXI National Museum of XXI Century Arts, which was designed by Hadid's firm, has been given even odds of winning by bookmaker William Hill.

Other buildings nominated for the prize include Oxford's Ashmolean Museum, designed by Rick Mather Architects, Theis and Khan's Bateman's Row in London and Christ's College School in Guildford by DSDHA.

London's Clapham Manor Primary School by dRMM and the Neues Museum in Berlin, a project from David Chipperfield Architects and Julian Harrap Architects, complete this year's shortlist.

RIBA president Ruth Reed commented: 'The RIBA Stirling Prize celebrates architectural excellence and this year we have a remarkable group of buildings on the shortlist.'

Last month, Heatherwick Studio won the RIBA Lubetkin Prize for the UK Pavilion at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai.
