Cambridge Laboratory by Stanton Williams voted best ever Stirling winner

  • Comment

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.

David Chipperfield’s Marbach Museum of Modern Literature, the winner of the prize in 2007, received the second most votes with Peckham Library by Alsop and Stormer coming in third.

Two RIBA Stirling Prize winning buildings, Magna Science Adventure Centre by Wilkinson Eyre Architects and Stephen Hodder’s Centenary Building, received no votes at all in the poll.
