Stirling Prize shortlist unveiled

21st July 2011

The shortlist has been unveiled for the 2011 Stirling Prize, the most prestigious architecture accolade in the UK, with the revamped Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon among the contenders.

Held annually by the Royal Institute of British Architects, the GBP 20,000 prize is presented to the building which has made the greatest contribution to British architecture in the past 12 months.

This year's candidates include the Evelyn Grace Academy in Brixton, designed by Zahah Hadid, as well as Sir David Chipperfield's Folkwang Museum in Essen and the Angel Building by AHMM in Islington.

O'Donnell + Tuomey's An Gaelaras centre in Derry and the 2012 Olympic Velodrome at Stratford, designed by Hopkins Architects, complete the shortlist.

The winner of the award will be announced during a ceremony on October 1st at the Magna Science Centre in Rotherham, which itself won the Stirling Prize in 2001 for the design by architects Wilkinson Eyre.
