Riverside Shortlisted for RIBA Stirling Prize
The City of Glasgow College, Riverside Campus has been shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize which is the UK’s most prestigious architectural award presented to the architect of the building thought to be the most significant of the year for the evolution of architecture and the built environment.
The RIBA Stirling Prize is judged on a range of criteria including design vision, innovation and originality, capacity to stimulate, engage and delight occupants and visitors, accessibility and sustainability, how fit the building is for its purpose and the level of client satisfaction.
The building will now go head-to-head with five others for architecture’s highest accolade, to be awarded by the RIBA on Thursday 6 October 2016.
The building is the result of years of close collaboration, between the combined architects’ team of Reiach and Hall and Michael Laird Architects alongside interior designers Graven Images, principal engineers Arup and Hulley and Kirkwood, contracting team of Sir Robert McAlpine and FES and, most importantly, the college itself.
We wish the Architects Reiach & Hall / Michael Laird Associates and all of the Team good luck on 6th October!
