The RIBA Stirling Prize is given for the RIBA Building of the Year. It is run in association with The Architects’ Journal and is presented to the architects of the building which has been the most significant for the evolution of architecture in the past year. The winning architect receives a cash prize of £20,000. The prize is named after the great British architect Sir James Stirling (1926-1992). Six buildings have been selected from the winners of the 2008 RIBA National Awards and European Awards. Denton Corker Marshall’s Manchester Civil Justice Centre in Spinningfields is among those nominated for the UK’s most prestigious architectural award. The 2008 RIBA Stirling Prize Dinner will take place at the Arena and Convention Centre in Liverpool on 11 October 2008.
