To maintain its legacy of recognising UK architects who uplift its national landscape one building at a time, RIBA shortlists six candidates for the 2021 RIBA Stirling Prize. The award is granted to one building in the UK that highlights vision and innovation. The list of curated ventures include a mosque in Cambridge, a museum beside Lake Windermere, and a footbridge in Tintagel Castle, among others. Although the projects are vastly different in location and program, they are underpinned by their creativity and contextual exploratiovn. The winner of the Stirling Prize will be announced at Coventry Cathedral in mid-October as part of the award’s 25th anniversary and the UK City of Culture 2021 celebrations.
