2013 Lubetkin Prize shortlist revealed

Projects by Zaha Hadid, Grimshaw and Wilkinson Eyre are vying for this year’s best international building gong - the 2013 Lubetkin Prize

Wilkinson Eyre, has the chance to win the prize for the best new international building outside the European Union by an RIBA member for the second time after bagging last year’s gong for their £600 million Guangzhou International Finance Centre in China.

The practice’s Cooled Conservatories Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, which was crowned world’s best building at WAF2012, has been shortlisted alongside projects by Zaha Hadid and Grimshaw.

Victory for Zaha Hadid Architects’ Galaxy SOHO, a 330,000m² retail and entertainment complex in Beijing, would see the prize won by a Chinese project for the second year in a row.

The three-project shortlist is completed by the 2007 Lubetkin Prize winner Grimshaw’s £62 million affordable housing development, Via Verde, in the Bronx, New York.

The winner of both the Lubetkin and the Stirling Prize will be announced on 26 September 2013 at a ceremony at Central Saint Martins, in London.
