RIBA Stirling Prize video: NEO Bankside by RSHP

  • Comment

Graham Stirk of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ talks about the design drivers behind his practice’s Stirling Prize-shortlisted NEO Bankside

He described the £132 million scheme as a the ‘breakdown of a headland’, telling the AJ: ‘If you think of physical geography – an arch, a stack , a stump.

‘We used this terminology as a way of defining this cliff face which was determined by the Blue Fin building.’

He added: ‘Much of what we tried to describe was a series of transitions in scale – a complimentary group of buildings. Each on their own is very simple.’

The 42,000m2 project overlooks the Thames and features an expressed diagrid steel structure.
