For art's sake

  • Comment

The RIBA likes nothing more than to be with it, and what better opportunity than to choose groovy judges for the Stirling Prize. Last year it was Stella McCartney. This year the invitation goes to that extraordinary artist, currently wowing them at the Saatchi Gallery - Tracey Emin.Weknow at least one of her tastes in architecture: the beach hut, scene of much youthful activity.

The hut has become something of a trend object, though the buildings likely to be shortlisted for the Stirling are rather more complicated. Astragal's top tips:

Caruso St John's Walsall art gallery, and Will Alsop's Peckham Library. The winner will, for once, be a well kept secret. Bookerstyle, the judges will make their final decision on the afternoon of the award.
