Birmingham art venue, nautical-inspired house and a forestry centre in running for 2017 accolade
Projects by BPN, McGarry-Mooon, Mole Architects with Rebecca Granger Architects, and Invisible Studio are in the running for this year’s Stephen Lawrence Prize.
Entries from Hyde + Hyde and BHSF Architekten with Studio-P make up the remainder the six-strong shortlist, which salutes projects with a construction budget of less than £1m and which was created in memory of the aspiring architect who was murdered in 1993.
The winner of this year’s award will be announced on October 31 – the same day as the Stirling Prize – and will be decided by a panel of judges that includes past RIBA president Marco Goldschmied, whose foundation supports the competition, and 2016 prize-winner Taro Tsurata of Tsurata Architects.
Also included on the panel is Stephen Lawrence’s mother Doreen, now Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon, and Stephen Lawrence Scholarship recipient Stephanie Edwards, of planning and design consultancy Barton Willmore.
