59-strong longlist for 2012 Stirling Prize released in the form of 2012 RIBA Awards winners

The longlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize has been announced in the form of the winners of the Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) 2012 Awards for architectural excellence. A list of 50 buildings across the UK and 9 in the EU has been released from which the Stirling Prize winner will be selected on 13 October 2012. The Stirling Prize is awarded each year to a project either built or designed in the UK which has pushed the boundaries of British architecture.

Ten of the schemes on this year’s RIBA Awards winners’ list are public arts buildings including the Eric Parry-designed Holburne Museum, former Stirling Prize winner David Chipperfield’s Hepworth Wakefield and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh by Page/Park Architects. In amongst these cultural projects are a wide variety of schemes across the sectors, such as Maggie’s South West Wales with Garber & James, Swansea by Kisho Kurokawa Architect & Associates and The Royal Veterinary College Student Village, Hatfield by Hawkins\Brown.

Speaking on the announcement, RIBA President Angela Brady said: “For nearly fifty years the RIBA Awards have reflected the changing state of British architecture and revealed emerging design trends. What really stands out is that even in times of austerity, we can still deliver amazingly clever, high quality buildings that reflect the needs of today and enhance our daily lives.”
