NW RIBA Shortlist: Fine New Work
 

FIFTEEN projects from the new £15m refurbed Whitworth to a new Waitrose have been shortlisted in the RIBA North West Awards.

It's the start of the architectural process that last year led to The Everyman Theatre in Liverpool winning the Stirling Prize.

As well as the Building of the Year Award the shortlist will also produce a Small Project of the Year Award for projects costing less than £500,000. North West based practices Howard Miller Design, Pearson Architects and Snook Architects are vying for this prize alongside Carmody Groarkes Maggies Centre at Clatterbridge.

The winners will be announced at an event at Halle St Peters in Manchester on Thursday 16 April 2015.

Love the Chester Waitrose.

So a building that blocks the view of the Liver Building is a good thing?????

Can anyone tell me how this works, the article talks about this year's prize but the Mann Island building in Liverpool was finished years ago...

Who is or are Fielden Clegg Bradley? Love the style of the work,almost organic. How about FCB being employed to design the new Greater Manchester assembly. A larger version of the Blackpool Humanities college would look sensational on the site of the Great Ancoats Street Retail Park and hopefully something can then be done about that ugly park/marina at the back.
