ARQUITECTURA | Galardones

La Academia Evelyn Grace de Londres, diseñada por la firma de arquitectos de Zaha Hadid , ha sido galardonada con el premio Stirling 2011 a la excelencia en arquitectura que concede cada año el Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
Esa moderna academia situada en el barrio de Brixton, al sur de la capital, se llevó la dotación de 20.000 libras (unos 23.000 euros) al ser elegida mejor edificio nuevo construido en Gran Bretaña u otros países de la Unión Europea, siempre que hayan sido diseñados por colegios de arquitectura con sede principal en este país.
Se trata de un instituto de secundaria diseñado por el mismo equipo de arquitectos que logró ese mismo galardón el pasado año por el nuevo museo de arte contemporáneo Maxxi de Roma.
La Evelyn Grace Academy es un edificio estilizado de cristal y acero con un diseño que, según apuntaron los jueces del RIBA, “hace que los niños corran al colegio cada mañana“. Es la primera escuela que gana este galardón aunque en el pasado otros siete edificios de colegios fueron finalistas.
Para Zaha Hadid Arquitects es la primera vez que se embarca en el diseño de un colegio y es también su primer proyecto a gran escala en el Reino Unido. Previamente, Hadid se encargó de diseñar un centro en Escocia, un museo en Glasgow y el Centro Acuático para los Juegos Olímpicos de Londres 2012.
Según señaló Angela Brady, la presidenta del panel de jueces, en la ceremonia celebrada la noche del sábado, la Evelyn Grace Academy “constituye un ejemplo excepcional de lo que se puede lograr cuando invertimos de forma cuidadosa en un nuevo edificio para un colegio bien diseñado”.

This year is the first time the shortlist includes practices who have all previously been shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize; and also includes two RIBA Stirling Prize winners: David Chipperfield Architects and Zaha Hadid Architects.
To reach the RIBA Stirling shortlist, the RIBA Awards Group study the recent RIBA Award winners and produce a list of the best buildings. This is based on reports from the juries that visited them in the earlier stage.
The Awards Group go on to visit all UK based buildings (as EU visits have already taken place). Listed below are all the buildings that were chosen for this stage and competed for the final six places:
About the Stirling Prize
Now in its sixteenth year, the RIBA Stirling Prize in association with The Architects’ Journal and Benchmark is awarded to architects of the best new European building ‘built or designed in Britain’.
The Evelyn Grace Academy, London by Zaha Hadid Architects has won the prestigious £20,000 RIBA Stirling Prize 2011.
This is the second year running that Zaha Hadid Architects have won the RIBA Stirling Prize; last year winning with MAXXI Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome.
Each year the organization awards accolades to a host of British architects for their built work in the field, seeking the edifice that made the “greatest contribution to British architecture in the past year.” Of its 102 honorees in the 2010 RIBA Awards, 93 are in the UK, with the remaining 9 sprinkled across Europe.
And despite economic woes, the show will go on. President Ruth Reed said, “In the midst of the deepest recession in the 45 year history of the RIBA Awards, this year’s awards demonstrate that although times might be hard for architects, there are still great buildings being built throughout the country and overseas.”
Unlike its cousin the Stirling Prize, also awarded by RIBA and pulled from the larger list of 102, the honorees comprise a handy reference guide to emerging and mid-career practices-to-watch: “Far from being a size prize, the RIBA Awards are for buildings that offer value to people’s lives.” Examples of “gem-like” projects that made the shortlist include a small circular restroom for bus drivers in London, a zero-carbon house, and the energy substation for the 2012 Olympics.

The judges described the London cancer centre as a “timeless work of architecture that not only distils the intentions of this brief but expresses in built form compassion, sensitivity and a deep sense of our common humanity.”
They added: “This quietly confident building is truly, unquestionably a haven for those who have been diagnosed with cancer. Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners’ achievement is in having created a completely informal, home-like sanctuary to help patients learn to live with cancer.”
In his short acceptance speech, Richard Rogers described the building as a “wonderful project”.
He paid tribute to Maggie Keswick, the late wife of client Charles Jencks, who’s death of cancer led Jencks to create a series of cancer care centres as a fitting memorial.
Rogers said: “The one person missing here is Maggie. She will certainly be the person I’m thinking of.”
Hugh Pearman, Architecture Critic
LORD ROGERS last night won the £20,000 Stirling Prize, the premier award in British architecture, for his design of a cancer support centre.
The prize comes as a ringing endorsement from his peers despite Rogers being bumped off the £1 billion Chelsea Barracks redevelopment project by the intervention of Prince Charles. His victory — for the Maggie’s Centre in Hammersmith, west London — came as a surprise. The favourite for the award had been an art gallery on a Danish island by minimalist architect Tony Fretton.
Giving the prestigious prize to the firm of Rogers Stirk Harbour was a popular choice, however. The programme of Maggie’s Centres began with a converted stable block in Edinburgh in 1996.
The six centres built so far are architecturally ambitious. Five are in Scotland, including designs by Frank Gehry (Dundee) and Zaha Hadid (Fife). Sarah Brown, the prime minister’s wife, was closely involved with the building of the Fife Maggie’s Centre, which is in her husband’s constituency.

Maggie’s Centre wins Stirling Prize
Richard Rogers’ Maggie’s Centre in west London has been awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize for 2009, announced at a televised ceremony on Saturday. From a shortlist of six, Rogers’ design won the £20,000 prize making this the second time his practice has achieved what is considered to be one of the most prestigious architecture prizes. Rogers’ Barajas Airport in Spain scooped the top spot in 2006.
