7:40 pm
ourjury lived the world of the six amazing projects. we engaged with those who used the building, lived, commissioned, conceived, and designed. we started on the shore of lake windemere with a jam of a museum. beautifully cited. we moved on to a corner, a historic corner in islington. and we saw a building with residences and architect studios with the most exquisitely carved stone fa ade. and then we went to kingston. something completely different. a building in the main street welcoming locals and
7:41 pm
students and fusing dance and a library. and then cambridge and on a smaller scale in the suburb we saw how a mosque broke down the barriers between the local community in a wonderfully caring way with the wider circle of worshipers. and in cambridge we saw ten buildings for affordable housing, desirable and based on the quadrangle of historic university. and then finally, we hit the tourist trail in cornwall and we saw we walked across this amazing bridge, suspended in space. engineering is arts. a reminder of the importance of infrastructure,
7:42 pm
the importance of infrastructure, the connections in our cities. and we started our discussions together as a jury, and we marveled at the way in which all of these buildings and the quality of design had improved the quality of the lives of those who use them. an extraordinary dedication, typically these buildings were taken eight or ten years of those who commissioned and worked with architects and the communities within them. and then as he penetrated and probed and we were amazed at the way in which the budget had been manipulated to squeeze the maximum extraordinary value for money and the advisor on sustainability was impressed by the way that each of them in their own ways were tackling the issues of
7:43 pm
energy and carbon footprint. and so many of the buildings were naturally ventilated. so they were healthy buildings for the occupants. so it was an incredibly optimistic experience and then the challenge of how do we find a winner? we wanted everyone to be a winner. but finally, after hours of agonized discussion as a team, we concluded that the winner was about younger generations. first generation students, and of course, that leads us to the town house by grafton architects. our 2021 riba stirling prize,
7:44 pm
kingston powerhouse. grafton architects. it was founded by the mcnamara is. it creates a progressive new model for higher education. well deserving of this highly original work of architecture. research and learning can delightfully coexist. it is no mean feat. this must be an example of the future of education. congratulations.

7:46 pm
and he did not seem that they could come. so we are delighted. this is i would team behind me from grafton architects and the identity to be here with you and to be able to share in this occasion. also, with our esteemed colleagues who presented all of the other amazing projects this evening and whose company we are so proud to be part of. and that i could to be part of. i could also say at our table we have stephen spare who is vice chancellor of the university and we have also shown will as the director of buildings and we also have an edwards who is the director of the construction company who helped us and who we collaborated with to make this project. they were wonderful clients who presented a most stimulating and provocative brief to us and both about the future of students and what the future of the
7:47 pm
university might be. we are all familiar with having to work at home and we are all familiar with the lives of students had to needs during the course of this period of difficulty for all of us. we have to realize and we ask this question what is the university for. and what we find is that the majority of modules while they can be taught online and all of that step university is a place where we come to get there. it's a place where we share our experiences and at the pacer we quell ourselves, apart from the subject matter that we are studying and it's a place where we meet for the first time who may become our lifelong friends. this for us was a must in any programme combining dance, studios with a library, you may see that it's too contradictory but it is mentioned as a learning experience that these two functions could overlap very comfortably but notjust be separate but also could integrate fully with
7:48 pm
each other. and i suppose that is one of the most stimulating things about this building and how it functions but more importantly the university wanted to reach out to the wider community. so, the community can come into this building and they can go right up to the very top of the building and access to facilities freely. and i think that's one of the most wonderful things about architecture is this generosity that it offers to us as users but also the generosity that it gives to strangers and this is something that in their manifesto for free space which is the word as a bun describes a shish kebab of two worlds of free space which go together to make a new idea about architecture and what it might give out and back to and how it might speak to the lives as much as the users themselves and we are standing in this magnificent building my basil stand switch i can speak press that he hadn't come across this about a wonderful documentary and
7:49 pm
who performed the y requiem for the first time in this building in 1962. but having visited coventry for the first time and i think that outside this building to stand under that canopy which is notjust about entering this hallowed space which is a space of memory and a space of the future as much as the space of the future as much as the space of the past but also a space where anybody of any denomination can pass through to get into the center of coventry. it's like a conduit which connects the university center and it does more than simply one thing and i imagine that's what how we felt about the university of kingston where every component would have to work really hard more than once to deliver on what it intended to do. so i would like to thank that jerry and thank everybody here for this wonderful honor this evening. thank you. the this wonderful honor this evening. thank ou. this wonderful honor this evening. thank you-— this wonderful honor this evening. thank you. the winner of this year is riba stirling — thank you. the winner of this year is riba stirling prize _ thank you. the winner of this year is riba stirling prize and - thank you. the winner of this year is riba stirling prize and the - is riba stirling prize and the building i visited just a few weeks ago. let's have a closer look at

congratulations. we are looking at this extraordinary building, the kingston town house and it was when a ba in its mind and that was about after an age of covid—19 isolation, lockdown, it was about bringing people together. it seems to be a fitting winner at the end of lockdown and the winner of this year is riba stirling prize is kingston town house grafton architects and talking to them they say one measure the building would be to look at happen many chance encounters there are and how many casual conversations and how many smiles and how much laughter there was in the building and a building that is a celebration of togetherness. it feels a fitting winner of this year is riba stirling prize building of the year. thank you.
