This building won the Stirling Prize in 2000. Designed when Alsop Architects was known as Alsop & Stormer it drew attention for helping regenerate a down-at-heel area but was criticised for the concept of being an show-off icon rather than an overall regeneration strategy: Peckham Library

Alsop Architects – Background

Will Alsop was born in 1947.

The principal studio is in London. Alsop Architects have satellite architect studios in Shanghai, Toronto and Sheringham and previously Hamburg & Rotterdam.

Alsop Architects were renamed Alsop Design (though some Press stated Alsop & Partners and the ‘Alsop Architects’ website is still going and top of the google rankings when checked in Jul 2005) in 2004.

Alsop Architects won a RIBA Design Award in 2000 for Peckham Library &
Media Centre, London.

Will Alsop has become famous over the years for his audacious proposals and his bold paintings. He shot to fame as an architect with his Grand Bleu in Marseilles, France and has latterly held the limelight with his TV programme suggesting multiple megacity axis across England. The abandonment of his Fourth Grace in Liverpool also provided many column inches.
