The RIBA awards have only just been announced and the architectural establishment is speculating about which of the 71 winning schemes will go on to make up the Stirling shortlist.

No one has been quite as vocal about their favourite project as Richard Murphy. It appears he has fallen in love with O'Donnell + Tuomey's Lewis Glucksman Gallery in Cork. Midway through last Friday's awards ceremony, Murphy came over to the Dublin-based architects and exclaimed: 'If you're not on the Stirling shortlist, I will resign from the RIBA.' Astragal does not intend to offer any guidance on which way observers should bet.
