Aslop-a-like scheme wins Austrian prize


Will Alsop has said he is 'relaxed' at news that a pair of Austrian architects have won a competition with a scheme bearing a strong resemblance to his Stirling Prizewinning Peckham Library.

Dora Aichner and Werner Seidl won the commission for a library in Brunecker, Austria, with a scheme one critic said was as similar to Peckham as a 'pair of eggs'.

'I'm not at all concerned about this and see it more as flattery, ' Alsop told the AJ. 'All I can do is wish them the best of luck.'
