It's already that time of year again when RIBA reveals the Stephen Lawrence Prize shortlist. The Marco Goldschmied Foundation established the annual prize in 1998 in memory of Stephen Lawrence, a teenager who aspired to become an architect but whose life tragically ended when he was murdered in 1993. The prize recognizes the best UK-based projects designed by emerging talent and was built with a construction budget of less than £1 million.
Six projects made it onto the 2016 shortlist. RIBA will then announce the winning project during the Stirling Prize Party at their London headquarters on October 6.
Get a glimpse of the projects below.
Exhibition Mews, Hampshire by Ash Sakula Architects
House of Trace, London by Tsuruta Architects
Mellor Primary School, Stockport by Sarah Wigglesworth Architects
Modern Side Extension, London by Coffey Architects
The Observatory, Hampshire by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios
Tin House, London by Henning Stummel Architects

- Marco Goldschmied, RIBA Past President and Founder of the Marco Goldschmied Foundation
- Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon
