INAUGURAL LUBETKIN LIST UNVEILED The three-strong shortlist for the first-ever Lubetkin Prize, for an outstanding work of architecture outside the EU by an RIBA member, has been unveiled. The shortlist for the competition, which is backed by the AJ's sister title the Architectural Review, is chosen from the RIBA's International Awards winners.
The Lubetkin Prize shortlist is:
? The Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, by Moriyama & Teshima Architects/Griffiths Rankin Cook Architects in a joint venture;
? The Red Location Museum of the People's Struggle in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, by Noero Wolff Architects; and - The Terrence Donnelly Centre in Toronto, by Behnisch Architekten with architect Alliance.
Among the RIBA International Award schemes that failed to make the final list were Zurich Airport, by Grimshaw, and the Dulnyouk Publishers building in South Korea, by Foreign Office Architects. RIBA president Jack Pringle said: 'I am delighted that the RIBA, in association with the AR, has created the Lubetkin Prize. Not only will the prize highlight the achievements of our members across the globe, but it also honours Berthold Lubetkin, an RIBA member who had a major impact on architecture internationally.'
The presentation of the prize will form the climax of the RIBA Awards dinner and ceremony on 23 June during Architecture Week.
