WilkinsonEyre’s Weston Library shortlisted for RIBA Stirling Prize

WilkinsonEyre’s Weston Library has been shortlisted for this year’s RIBA Stirling Prize.

It is one of six shortlisted buildings that will now go head-to-head for architecture’s highest accolade.

This year’s shortlist includes:

  • Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford by Herzog & de Meuron
  • City of Glasgow College, Riverside Campus by Michael Laird Architects & Reiach and Hall Architects
  • Newport Street Gallery, Vauxhall, London by Caruso St John Architects
  • Outhouse Gloucestershire by Loyn & Co Architects
  • Trafalgar Place, Elephant and Castle, London by dRMM Architects
  • Weston Library, University of Oxford by WilkinsonEyre

Speaking about the shortlist RIBA President Jane Duncan said:

“The shortlisted projects are each fantastic new additions to their individual locations – on an urban street, a city riverside, an estate regeneration, an historic city centre and a hidden part of the countryside - but their stand-out common quality is the inspiration they will bring to those who study, live, visit and pass by them, for generations to come. To me, this shortlist reflects everything that is great about UK architecture – a blend of experimental, artistic vision and a commitment to changing people’s lives for the better.”

The winner will be announced by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) on Thursday 6 October 2016.
