Stirling Prize revellers give their thoughts on the winners

  • Comment

The AJ had exclusive access to the good and the great of the architecture community at this year's Stirling Prize awards ceremony. This is what some of them thought of this year's winner: Accordia by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Alison Brooks Architects and Maccreanor Lavington Architects.

Phil Redmond, director of Liverpool Capital of Culture

I think it’s really interesting that this scheme won. I was watching a Terence Davis film again recently that shows the people of Liverpool talking about their street and where they live and the people around them. I think architecture in recent times has lost that spirit of togetherness. But this project seems to be a reaffirmation of that sentiment.

The fact that Liverpool hosted the Stirling Prize…?

It’s quite important. It won’t come back but it should. Just look at the heritage of Liverpool – you talk about St Pancras and Giles Gilbert Scott well look at the catholic cathedral, it’s all here as well. The architecture of Liverpool gives Scousers their confidence. It makes us who we are.
