Stephen Hodder, RIBA president and the first winner of the RIBA Stirling Prize (1996), said: “Every one of the six shortlisted buildings shows what great public architecture can do: it can transcend mere construction to something quite poetic.

“The shortlist comprises no ordinary new swimming pool, office block, theatre, library or university – they are beautiful, inspiring and transformative new buildings that their communities can relish and be proud of.”

The winner of the 2014 RIBA Stirling Prize will be announced on Thursday 16 October.

The 2014 RIBA Stirling Prize judges, who will visit the six shortlisted buildings and select the winner on 16 October, are: Spencer de Grey – chair (Foster and Partners), MJ Long (Long and Kentish architects), Cindy Walters (Walters and Cohen), Stephen Kieran (Kieran Timberlake) and Sir Timothy Sainsbury.
