A former steelworks in Rotherham this week won the Stirling Prize for architecture following a £37M make-over by architect Wilkinson Eyre to create the Magna Science Adventure Centre. With funding from the Millennium Commission and English Partnerships, the site's two 350m long bays now form a cathedral like celebration of the four elements of the steel-making process:
earth, air, fire and water. Structural engineering by Mott MacDonald helped to create walkways and galleries linking spectacularly lit exhibits and activities. Services engineer was Buro Happold and contractor was Schal.
