Grimshaw's Southern Cross Station wins Lubetkin prize 

Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station was awarded the prestigious Lubetkin Prize at a gala event held by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in London. The Lubetkin Prize is given annually to the most outstanding building outside the European Union. Southern Cross Station, designed by Grimshaw in association with Daryl Jackson Architects, is the first Australian project to be awarded this distinguished prize. The station redevelopment was Grimshaw’s first Australian project and persuaded the practice to remain in Australia and form a permanent base to complement its offices in London and New York. Southern Cross Station was also awarded an RIBA International Award. RIBA Awards are given to projects that have high architectural standards and make a substantial contribution to the local environment. The awards are annual, and have been running continuously since 1966. The award builds on Grimshaw’s recent successes at the RIBA awards. The practice won an International award last year for its work on Zurich International Airport in Switzerland and a European award for the Caixa Galicia Art Foundation in Northern Spain. Keith Brewis as Partner In Charge of Grimshaw’s Melbourne office, oversaw the design and construction of Southern Cross Station.
