Punters backing O’Donnell + Tuomey to win RIBA Stirling Prize


IF i were a betting man then I would agree with the odds on favourite, but who knows the machinations of the jury...they are quite simply brilliant and talented architects at the peak of their powers displaying a warm intelligence, humour, bravery, artistic endeavour and humanity, all qualities identifiable in Jim Stirling. That adage quoted occasionally by the critic; Robert Maxwell really does apply to this duo ‘’ We see here an Architecture that values the past without erecting it into an ideology, that can work with the past while correcting its idiosyncrasies. It is Architecture at the same time modern and perennial: it combines ancient wisdom and modern know-how.’’
