RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize founder Marco Goldschmied said:
“I am particularly impressed with the diversity of the projects shortlisted for this year’s RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize. Each has been expertly designed to work with rather than against the constraints of the site, whether rural or urban. The shortlist proves that brilliant architecture can be executed on a smaller budget and clearly demonstrates the ingenuity of the profession today. We very much look forward to selecting this year’s winner.”

The winner of the 2015 RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize will be announced at the RIBA Stirling Prize party on 15 October at the RIBA in central London.

The judges are Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon, Doreen Lawrence CBE the mother of Stephen Lawrence, Marco Goldschmied, RIBA Past President and Founder of the Marco Goldschmied Foundation, which established the RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize in 1998 and Murray Kerr, founder of Denizen Works, which won the Stephen Lawrence Prize in 2014.
