  • Comment on: Leading architects reject calls for RIBA Stirling Prize sustainability threshold

    sofie Pelsmakers's comment 15-Oct-2014 9:36 am

    Sustainable, long-lasting design and good architecture are not - and should not - be mutually exclusive. Not including sustainability as a threshold seems to suggest that they are incompatible - and indicates that some of the profession's 'mood of the moment' views are outdated and still 'business as usual'. As Rab Bennetts points out a building which is unsustainable should not win the Stirling Prize; and I think Simon Sturgis and Alan Shingler make a better argument than any other why sustainability should not be a secondary consideration. It is about time the Stirling Prize acknowledged this openly; it might bring about a shift in architectural education too.

    It is an honour to be listed among these notable women, though I think Hattie Hartman should be listed here too!
