inside fcukin line , are you joking. The RIBA panel described it as "sheer poetry", can't fail.

I'd only drink the £25,000 anyway and after all there's always Sligo

Don't think Hugh and I see eye to eye at the moment.

Hell of a thing to fall out about, Frank Gehry

First Bob Geldof, described him and his Maggie Centre as Michaelangelo painting his mother's ceiling then some fellow in this weeks Building Design described Gehry as Mozart. I now know my place, I can tell you.

Architecture is easy for some folk, it's English that's hard

An Turas - for a building that only cost £85k it's up for over £50k worth of prize money!

add that to the cost cutting measure of discarding the roof makes it a very financially efficient proposal!

almost makes it worth building for the sake of awards....

Well done, Hugh (and Archiseek). Laban's night - http://www.architecture.com/go/Architecture/Also/Awards_2301.html

Nice to see that Think Tank in West Cork by Gumuchdjian Architects won The Stephen Lawrence Prize sponsored by the Marco Goldschmied Foundation, for the best example of a building with a construction budget of less than £350,000.

Yes, congaratulations Hugh old boy.

Gumuchdjian Architects are an interesting crew Trace, don't know much about them but thought their river house ( is that Think Tank?) in Skibbereen, published last month in the AJ looked very good indeed.
