Interesting. Rogers up for two.

So whos the favorite? the airport is the better of the two buildings , theyre both of the same Rogers ouvre. I think the Antwerp law courts is better than both but maybe it didnt make the deadline and will be in next time.

Zaha's science centre looked amazing when it was half built but i was dissapointed with the finished photos that i saw, particularily the interior.

I like the hopkins building definitely one of his better ecent buildings.

the idea store is an intensely un-inspiring building i am very surprised that this is in. i reckon it is more a nod to an important architect than the building itself.

for me the brick house is the best work of architecture on the list. materially and spatially it is beautiful. i think it would be the first private house to win if it did. ill go for it, followed by the airport.

I take a different view on the idea store and suggest that the given the postcode and client that the building is a very good piece of architecture given the probable budgetary constraints. I agree that the brick house is a very good piece of work and will be highly regarded by those within the profession as a very creative piece of work. The other projects are all very good civic projects that will have extensive impacts within their niche fields and I feel that the Welsh Assembley building will probably win on political grounds and if it does it will not be undeserved as it is a very fine piece of work that unlike the Scottish parliment was project managed very efficiently.

Are you going to do a poll this year?

Well, the only one, I've personally visited is the Idea Store by David Adjaye, which I would like to win, as I'm a fan of his work.
I can't imagine the Brick House being a very inviting house to live in, based on those photos..

Is there any images of the exterior of the Brick House available? Looks impressive on the inside, but would be great to see some views of the exterior too.

Ive been to the Idea Store too, and its no more than a multi-story shed with colourded glass windows ( and not a very well made shed at that ). His private houses added to architectural discourse but as a stand alone building this one has very little of interest.

There is a picture of the roof of the brick house on ther cover of an AR a couple of months back. the whole idea of the house is about it being an internalised world on a tight infill site using normal materials in a very specific manner. so the main internal space pictured is what this house is about. it may not be the conservative's idea of the 'nicest' place to live but this building is by far the most vital in terms of freshness and excecution. all the others with the exception of rogers perhaps are jaded examples of buildings we have seen a thousand times before.

The RIBA Stirling Prize is given for the RIBA Building of the Year. It is run in association with The Architects' Journal and is presented to the architects of the building which has been the most significant for the evolution of architecture in the past year.

The winning architect receives a cash prize of £20,000. The prize is named after the great British architect Sir James Stirling (1926-1992).

The shortlisted buildings are visited in September by the RIBA Stirling Prize jury, who reconvene on the afternoon of the RIBA Stirling Prize Dinner to make their final decision.

Looks like Richard Rogers won it with the Barajas Airport.
Shame. It was probably my least favourite design.
