RIBA Stirling Prize 2016 - shortlist

Blavatnik School of Government by Herzog & de Meuron
I always enjoy the Stirling architecture prize and this year’s shortlist looks great. I have only visited one of the buildings - Newport Street Gallery, which I enthused about, here - but, judging just by the pictures, the Blavatnik School of Government looks spectacular and the Outhouse is a dream house.
The full shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2016 includes three university buildings – two in Oxford and one in Glasgow – a private house, a housing estate redevelopment and an art gallery. 
The buildings are:
- Blavatnik School of Government by Herzog & de Meuron
- City of Glasgow College Riverside Campus by Michael Laird Architects with Reiach and Hall Architects
- Newport Street Gallery, designed by Caruso St John Architects
- Outhouse, Gloucestershire, designed by Loyn & Co Architects
- Trafalgar Place, designed by dRMM Architects
- The Weston Library, designed by Wilkinson Eyre
See a selection of images below with links to descriptions of the buildings on the RIBA website.
Read commentary by Oliver Wainwright and Rowan Moore.
The winner of the prize will be announced on 6 October, 2016 and the winner is Caruso St John for the Newport Street Gallery!
(See the shortlists (and winners) for 2015, 2014 and 2013.)
