Macreanor Lavington wint RIBA Stirling Prize
Accordia in Cambridge, ontworpen door Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Alison Brooks Architects, en Macreanor Lavington (gevestigd in Londen en Rotterdam) heeft de 13de RIBA Stirling Prize gewonnen.
De uitrijking van de prestigieuze Britse prijs vond plaats op zaterdag 11 oktober in de Arena and Convention Center te Liverpool, en was live te volgen op de Britse televisie.
Commentaar van de Jury: 'This is high density housing at its very best, demonstrating that volume house-builders can deliver high quality architecture and that as a result they can improve their own bottom line. The whole scheme is about relationships: between architect and developer/contractor/client; between three very different firms of architects Feilden Clegg Bradley, Maccreanor Lavington and Alison Brooks Architects; and between private and public external spaces, providing a new model for outside-inside life with interior rooftop spaces, internal courtyards and large semi-public community gardens.'
