An art gallery or a library? A housing complex or a private home? A university campus or a school for civil servants? Who will win the 2016 RIBA Stirling Prize? The winner will not be announced until October 6, but let’s take a look at some of the projects shortlisted for the prestigious prize that have been covered in Floornature.

The finalists for the RIBA Stirling Prize

The name of the architectural studio and project winning the RIBA Stirling Prize, the most important architecture award in the UK, will be announced on October 6 . While we wait to find out who the winners are, let’s look back at six finalists presented over the past few weeks in Floornature. Very different projects, with very different purposes!
Our quick overview begins with buildings for educational purposes, such as the Blavatnik School of Government, designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron in Oxford, and the buildings for the Riverside Campus of City of Glasgow College by Michael Laird Architects & Reiach and Hall Architects.
We continue with WilkinsonEyre’s renovation of Weston Library University of Oxford, built by Giles Gilbert Scott in 1930. Another cultural project is Newport Street Gallery by Caruso St John Architects.
And lastly, two residential projects: the homes in Trafalgar Place housing development by dRMM Architects in London’s Elephant & Castle district, and the Outhouse, a single home designed by Loyn & Co Architects competing for the RIBA Stirling Prize and the RIBA House of the Year Award.
