Have a flutter on Stirling

  • Comment

The RIBA has released its shortlist for the £20,000 Stirling Prize, the winner of which will be announced from MacCormac Jamieson Prichard's Wellcome Wing at the Science Museum in London on 4 November. And William Hill is taking bets on the prize. The shortlist (with the latest odds) is: the 'masterpiece' £32.5 million Canary Wharf Station on the Jubilee Line Extension by Foster and Partners ( 7/2 joint favourite); the 'almost faultless' New Art Gallery at Walsall by Caruso St John Architects (7/2 JF ); the 'ambitious' BA London Eye by Marks Barfield (4/1); the 'excellent' people's choice £13 million Sainsbury's supermarket in Greenwich by Chetwood Associates (9/2); the 'extraordinary and innovative' Peckham Library and Media Centre by Alsop & Stormer (6/1); the 'beautifully detailed' £55 million 88 Wood Street, London EC2 by Richard Rogers Partnership (13/2); and the 'intelligent and beautiful' £58 million GSW Headquarters in Berlin by Sauerbruch Hutton Architects (7/1). The Stephen Lawrence Prize, sponsored by the Goldschmied Trust, for a building under £500,000, looks like it will go to Softroom's steel shelter for walkers in Northumberland.

Other contenders are a house in Wiltshire and a London Guide hut.

Prizes for sustainability and conservation will also be made - Allford Hall Monaghan Morris' Great Notley school is hotly tipped.
