Juergen Teller’s photography studio near the Westway has made the shortlist for the UK’s leading architecture award, the Stirling Prize.
The building, designed by 6a architects joins five other shortlisted buildings which will now go head-to-head for UK architecture’s highest accolade, to be awarded by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) on Tuesday 31 October 2017.
The other buildings on the list are:
- Barrett’s Grove, Stoke Newington, east London by Groupwork + Amin Taha
- British Museum World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre, Bloomsbury, London by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners
- Command of the Oceans by Baynes and Mitchell Architects for Chatham Historic Dockyard in Kent
- City of Glasgow College – City Campus, Scotland by Reiach & Hall Architects and Michael Laird Architects
- Hastings Pier, East Sussex by dRMM Architects
RIBA President Jane Duncan said: “Despite its constrained and semi-industrial plot in west London, the Photography Studio for Juergen Teller is an oasis in which the architects and landscape designer Dan Pearson have created a seemingly modest yet sublime light-filled studio and garden. Every single detail created by this exceptionally talented architect is precise and highly considered.”
