Manser Medal-contender Carl Turner has been named among the finalists for this year’s Stephen Lawrence Prize
Carl Turner Architects’ translucent glass Brixton terrace is one of five projects in London to be named on the shortlist for the prize which celebrates buildings with a construction budget of less than £1 million.
The Chapel of Saint Albert the Great, in Edinburgh, by Simpson & Brown Architects is the only project outside the capital to be make the final shortlist.
RIBA National Award winners Church Walk by David Mikhail & Annalie Riches and AY Architects’ Montpelier Nursery along with RIBA Regional Award winners Carmody Groarke’s Filling Station and 25 Tanners Hill by Dow Jones Architects complete the shortlist.
The prize, set up in memory of the teenager who was setting out on the road to becoming an architect when he was murdered in 1993, is intended to encourage fresh talent working with smaller budgets. Winners of the prize, which is announced at the Stirling Prize party on Thursday 26 September, will receive £5000.
