MUMA emerges as early bookies' favourite for Stirling Prize

Storey's Field Community Centre and Nursery, Cambridge, by MUMA

Practice pushes award veteran Fosters into second place

McInnes Usher McKnight Architects has nudged Foster & Partners into second place as bookies’ favourite to win this year’s top UK architecture accolade.

Hours after the 2018 Stirling Prize shortlist emerged, bookmaker William Hill placed MUMA’s Storey’s Field Community Centre and Nursery in Cambridge a nose ahead of Foster’s Bloomberg HQ in the City of London, giving the former odds of 10/3 against the latter’s 7/2.

Storey’s Field is MUMA’s second Stirling Prize shortlisting: the practice missed out to AHMM’s Burntwood School in 2015’s fray. Fosters has been nominated for the prize 10 times and won it twice – for the Imperial War Museum Duxford and 30 St Mary Axe.
