The Stirling Prize ceremony, sponsored by the AJ, attracted a record TV audience last Sunday night on Channel 4. Some 1.1 million viewers tuned in to the show, 100,000 up on last year's figures.

The event, at Foster and Partners'Great Court at the British Museum, drew an audience of 740, including Lady Stirling, Chris Smith MP, Nicky Gavron, Richard and Ruthie Rogers, Spencer de Grey, Peter York, Charlie Luxton, TV gardening expert Diamuid Gavin, ex MP David Mellor and 20 students invited by RIBA president Paul Hyett.

Hyett used the event to hand over a cheque for £78,000 to Shelter director Alastair Jackson - raised from the Architect in the House and Architect in the Office initiatives, where architects visited people's homes and offices to advise on works in return for a £15 and £50 donation respectively.
