Jubilee Library lands Prime Minister's Award as warm up to Stirling

  • Comment
The Stirling Prize-nominated Jubilee Library by Bennetts Associates with Lomax Cassidy & Edwards has won the 2005 Prime Minister's Better Public Building Award.

The announcement of the news yesterday evening (13.10.05) came just two days before the unveiling of the winner of the Stirling Prize, British architecture's most coveted accolade.

The £8 million library beat 14 other schemes on the shortlist, chosen from a record 139 entries, at an awards ceremony in London last night.

Other shortlisted schemes included Hopkins' Inn the Park; Farrells' Home Office Project and Foster and Partners' SAGE building in Gateshead.

Presenting the award at the British Construction Industry Awards ceremony, Tessa Jowell MP, secretary of state for culture, media and sport, said: 'The Jubilee Library in Brighton is a stunning piece of architecture that enhances its location, its environment and its community. In a very tight field, it makes a most deserving winner of this prestigious award.'

The British Construction Industry Awards was jointly sponsored by CABE and the Office of Government Commerce (OGC). It is also supported by the AJ.
