RIBA Stirling Prize: Who do bookies think will win?

Julia Hatmaker

The day before the big announcement, Carmody Groarke’s Windermere Jetty Museum in Cumbria is still considered a strong contender to claim the award, according to bookmakers William Hill.

The bookies have placed the museum’s odds at 11/4, making it the second safest choice. However, the clear favourite is the Cambridge Central Mosque, which has the odds of 7/4. The mosque was designed by Marks Barfield Architects.

Behind those two is Tintagel Castle Footbridge, which has odds of 9/2. Both 15 Clerkenwell Close and Town House at Kingston University boast odds of 5/1. Key Worker Housing in Eddington has the longest shot of being named winner according to the bookies – they put its odds at 11/2.

The Royal Institute of British Architects Stirling Prize is the most coveted architectural award in the country. Judged by a jury of experts, the Stirling Prize is given to the best new building in the UK.

In order to earn a spot on the Stirling Prize shortlist, the projects had to win spots on their regional awards and national ones.

Here are the winning North West and North Wales projects:

The Stirling Prize winner will be announced on 14 October.

I visited Windermere Jetty Museum back in June – it’s both a fine museum and a fine building. The building cluster brief delivers in spades.

This or Cambridge Central Mosque to pick up the gong.
