The Best of the Rest for the Stirling Prize


By way of Dezain, we were pointed to the BBC‘s video coverage of the finalists for the Stirling Prize. Among the winner, which we reported on yesterday as David Chipperfield Architects’ Museum of Modern Literature, are five other pretty amazing buildings. There’s Koolhaas’ Casa Da Music in Portugal, Foster and Partners‘ redevelopment of the Dresden train station, and even another Chipperfield creation, the America’s Cup Building in Spain (so, with that average, two of six, they were bound to win, right?). And with each, there’s some great video highlighting the process and capturing some stellar shots of their exteriors.
