Riverside architect Zaha Hadid wins Stirling Prize

with one comment

Congratulations to Zaha Hadid Architects, the designers of Glasgow’s Riverside Museum, who won the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize on Saturday.

Zaha Hadid Architects won the architecture prize for the MAXXI National Museum for 21st Century Arts in Rome. This was the third time that ZHA had been nominated for the Stirling Prize, which is run by the Royal Institute of British Architecture.

This year’s other nominated buildings included the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, Batemen’s Row and Clapham Manor Primary School in London, Christ’s College School in Guildford and Neues Museum in Berlin.

It’s a great win for Zaha Hadid – who has also won the Pritzker Prize and a string of other awards – and a great boost for the Riverside Museum prior to its opening next year.
