Stanton Williams’ Cambridge Laboratory has been voted the AJ readers’ favourite ever RIBA Stirling Prize-winning building
In a poll on the AJ website, Stanton Williams’ building was chosen ahead of the 17 other RIBA Stirling Prize victors, receiving a whooping 21 per cent of the vote.
The science research laboratory in the University of Cambridge’s Botanic Garden scooped the prize in 2012, seeing off bookies’ favourite the Hepworth Gallery by David Chipperfield Architects and the punters’ frontrunner - the Olympic Stadium by Populous.
