RIBA Stirling Prize: the profession reacts


Congratulations to a creative team and client, this architecture speaks volumes. Respecting the past and making good use of an old building without need for demolition will be recognised in the future as thoughtful and timeless qualities. This form of architectural approach is not often recognised at this level of professional competition and it good to see. Sophisticated Architecture of substance over style that is to be applauded and respected. Good engineers, and supporting team have clearly crafted the best from this particular site and the opportunities presented by the brief for a gallery. Even if the use changes in the future, which I hope it won't - this will still be a useful building and a credit to all involved. Bravo, a great to the stirling prize list!
