Perennial Stirling bridesmaids win 2015 gold medal

  • Comment

This year saw former James Stirling staffers John Tuomey and Sheila O’Donnell secure their fifth Stirling Prize shortlisting

But yet again their entry – this time the LSE’s Saw Swee Hock Student Centre – proved only the close runner-up.

In the light of new eligibility restrictions limiting Stirling Prize entries to buildings in the UK, Tuomey acknowledged that the Dublin-based practice’s chances of ever winning the prize were now significantly diminished.

However, it wasn’t all bad news. In September the RIBA announced O’Donnell and Tuomey as the recipients of next year’s Gold Medal – a hugely popular choice and one that, it is to be hoped, will prove instrumental in securing their practice more work in the UK.
