Stirling Prize coverage switches to BBC

  • Comment

This year’s RIBA Stirling Prize will be shown as a special edition of BBC Two’s The Culture Show - a move which ends a ten-year relationship with Channel 4

The live show, which will be broadcast on Saturday 2 October at 6.30pm from The Roundhouse, London (pictured), will again be presented by Grand Designs frontman Kevin McCloud.

The prestigious prize, in association with The Architects’ Journal, is awarded to the architects of the best new European building ‘built or designed in Britain’ and is now into its fifteenth year.

Mark Bell, the BBC’s commissioning editor for arts said: ‘As part of the BBC’s commitment to the arts we’re delighted to be shining the light on the very best in British architecture. The Culture Show, which reflects the best of the cultural landscape, is the perfect vehicle for delivering a strong live programme about architecture.’

Last year the accolade was picked up by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners for its Maggie’s Centre in Hammersmith (pictured).
