Has Goldsmith Street’s Stirling Prize win even registered with the property industry?


It doesn't surprise me neither Property Week or Estates Gazette paid much attention to a council housing Stirling Prize winner, despite the exceptional nature of that deserved win. Nor should it surprise anyone that housebuilder goliaths fail to re-tweet the good news. The RIBA needs to thaw relations with housebuilders and developers and quit berating them if it wants to influence their thinking. A diplomatic warm embrace is required after a Cold War lasting decades, affirming a view of the architectural profession as "arrogant" - which is clearly not the case when it comes to practices like Mikhail Riches, and many others. When it takes more than 10 years to get one street built, there are clearly also many more fundamental issues that need addressing. Less stick, more carrot.
