RIBA Stirling Prize 2019 goes to Goldsmith Street council housing scheme


Congratulations to everyone involved in the design and procurement of this exemplary social housing scheme. The decision to reward socially responsive schemes on a modest budget, and in particular to shine a light on the transformative nature of well designed public housing is long over due. Perhaps RIBA could now start lobbying the government to address Britain's housing crisis. The judges also deserve credit for having the courage to look beyond the usual round up of "A" list architects for a winner.
