Bath graduates honoured with prestigious Stirling Architecture Prize

Bath graduates have featured prominently in this year’s Stirling Architecture Prize.

The prize is the country’s most prestigious award for a building by a British architect and the results were announced at the RIBA Stirling Prize Dinner at the Arena and Convention Centre in Liverpool on 11 October and broadcast live on Channel 4.

The winner was the ‘Accordia’ housing project in Cambridge, with the prize awarded jointly to its three contributing architects. The winning architects include MacCreanor Lavington, formed by two graduates from Bath’s Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering. The principal architects for the scheme were Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, whose partners include Peter Clegg, a part-time Professor in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, and Keith Bradley, who is also a graduate of the architecture programme at Bath.

The prize is named after the eminent British Architect Sir James Stirling and its recipients receive £20,000.
