RIBA Special Awards shortlist announced
David Chipperfield, DSDHA, dRMM, Carmody Groarke and Aecom are among the finalists for the RIBA Special Awards 2010.
The awards, with a prize value of £5,000, acknowledge architectural excellence in five categories: conservation project, public space, school, project with a budget under £1 million, and client.
Carmody Groarke’s memorial to the victims of the 2005 London bombings has been shortlisted for two awards – the Stephen Lawrence Prize and the Public Space Award. The firm’s Regent’s Place Pavilion is also in the running for the latter.
Drawn from the 102 RIBA Award-winning buildings announced earlier this year, the winners will be announced at the Stirling Prize dinner in October.
