On 18 July 2019, six projects were shortlisted for the coveted 2019 RIBA Stirling Prize, awarded to the UK’s best new (or mostly new!) `building, many of which recognise the modern challenges of designing within the constraints of context.
The RIBA Stirling Prize, sponsored by Almacantar, 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. In 2018 the RIBA Stirling Prize was awarded to Bloomberg, designed by Foster + Partners. We’ll be announcing this year’s winner in a ceremony on 8 October.
