RIBA Stirling Prize 2013

July 18, 2013 by  

RIBA Stirling Prize 2013, A revamped 1960s tower block, a home in the ruins of a 12th century castle and a chapel for nuns are in the running for a top architecture prize.

They feature on the shortlist of six for the Royal Institute of British Architects’ Stirling Prize which celebrates the year’s most exceptional buildings.

And for the first time in the 18 year history of the UK’s best-known architecture prize, half of the practices have women at the helm, it was revealed.

Also competing for the 2013 award are a new visitor centre at the Giant’s Causeway, an estate of new homes in Essex and a new medical school building. Bookmaker William Hill has installed Bishop Edward King Chapel in Cuddesdon, Oxfordshire, as the favourite to win the prize.

The £2million building, finished earlier this year, was built for Ripon College and an order of nuns, the Community of St John the Baptist, and it features a series of high windows which flood it with natural light. Judges said that it ‘fulfils its complex brief with a lyrical grace’.
