Zaha Hadid, Mecanoo and Renzo Piano are among the finalists shortlisted for the Riba Stirling Prize

Riba (Royal Institute of British Architects) has announced the list of candidates shortlisted for the 2014 RIBA Stirling Prize, Britain's most prestigious award for architecture. 56 candidates have qualified as finalists, and the winner will be announced at the awards ceremony on October 6th.

The following projects and architectural studios are competing for the 2014 Riba Stirling Prize:
Everyman Theatre, Liverpool by Haworth Tompkins
Library of Birmingham by Mecanoo Architecten
London School of Economics Saw Swee Hock Student Centre by O'Donnell + Tuomey Architects
London Aquatics Centre by Zaha Hadid Architects
London Bridge Tower, known as The Shard, by Renzo Piano Building Workshop
Manchester School of Art by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios

RIBA chairman Stephen Hodder noted that the list of finalists includes buildings of very different types with very different functions, but they are all constructions which their communities may be proud of.
Some trivia about the finalists: architect Zaha Hadid has already won the Riba Stirling Prize twice, in 2011 (Evelyn Grace Academy) and in 2010 (Maxxi Museum in Rome), while Irish architectural studio O'Donnell + Tuomey has been nominated 4 times but never actually won the prize.
