Stephen Lawrence Prize 2012

  • Comment

[STEPHEN LAWRENCE PRIZE] The shortlist of five projects vying for the Stephen Lawrence Prize represents the best schemes of 2012 built for less than £1 million

The Stephen Lawrence Prize, sponsored by the Marco Goldschmied Foundation, rewards the best examples of projects that have a construction budget of less than £1 million. The prize, set up in memory of the teenager who was setting out on the road to becoming an architect when he was murdered in 1993, is intended to encourage fresh talent working with smaller budgets.

This year, there are three houses vying for the prize, two of them urban (gap sites in Peckham and Oxford), the other for a village in Kent. The other contenders are a community centre for homeless people in Whitechapel and an extension to a hotel and restaurant complex, again in Kent.

The judges are: last year’s winner, Phil Coffey, of Coffey Architects; sponsor Marco Goldschmied and Stephen’s mother, Doreen Lawrence, founding director of the Stephen Lawrence Trust. The winner receives £5,000.
