2012 Stirling Prize short-list announced.

The RIBA has announced the 2012 Stirling Prize Shortlist. It is the most prestigious British Architecture prize and has helped to move architecture higher in the public's consciousness in the same way that the Turner Prize did for contemporary British Art.

The shortlist has some interesting projects but there is a whiff of politics when the stadium is the only Olympic building to be featured. Architects of other Olympic projects will no doubt wait until the legacy stage has been completed before submitting their entries.

The projects shortlisted are:

The Hepworth Wakefield by David Chipperfield Architects

The Lyric Theatre Belfast by O'Donnell + Tuomey Architects

Maggy's Centre, Glasgow by OMA with Gartnavel

New Court, London by OMA with Allies & Morrison

The Olympic Stadium, London by Populous

Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge by Stanton Williams


Good luck to them all!
