NEWS STIRLING PRIZE Fosters’ Bloomberg HQ wins Stirling Prize


Bloomberg’s European headquarters, designed by Foster + Partners, has won the 2018 Stirling Prize following a unanimous decision by RIBA judges. The financial media giant’s HQ in the


City of London was described by RIBA president Ben Derbyshire as a “monumental achievement”. Thought to be the largest stone building constructed in the City since St Paul’s Cathedral, the RIBA said it was a “project which has pushed the boundaries of research and innovation in architecture”. Derbyshire said the 1.1 million ft2


building


has “not just raised the bar for office design and city planning, but smashed the ceiling.” Bloomberg achieved BREEAM Outstanding with a rating of 98.5 per cent, making it the world’s most sustainable office building. The scheme comprises two buildings


connected by a bridge, either side of a new public arcade, and provides a workplace for 4,000 staff. Although Fosters had permission to design a building over double the height, Bloomberg sits at a modest 10 stories, “seeking to create a dialogue with the City that surrounds it”. The building incorporates a museum


displaying the Roman Temple of Mithras and contrasts a restrained exterior with a


AWARD


Sir Nicholas Grimshaw awarded RIBA Royal Gold Medal for Architecture


Sir Nicholas Grimshaw is to receive the 2019 Royal Gold Medal, the UK’s highest honour for architecture, awarded by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).


Given in recognition of a lifetime’s


work, the Royal Gold Medal is approved personally by Her Majesty The Queen


and is given to a person or group of people who have had a significant influence “either directly or indirectly on the advancement of architecture”. Announcing the award, RIBA president Ben Derbyshire said: “It was my privilege to chair the panel that selected Sir Nicholas Grimshaw for UK architecture’s highest accolade. For more than half a century, his influence has been exceptional.”


“He is responsible for an extraordinary number of buildings and infrastructure projects of international significance, and for the continuous development of an architecture which places technology at the heart of the aesthetic.” Derbyshire concluded: “His influence on architecture extends beyond his work as a practitioner. He is an educator,


champion for the UK architectural profession and for culture more widely. He is an inspiration to a future generation of architects and his recognition with this Royal Gold Medal is well overdue.” Responding to the announcement of his


award, Grimshaw said, “I am thrilled to hear about the Gold Medal and would like to thank those who supported my nomination. My life, and that of the practice, has always been involved in experiment and in ideas, particularly around sustainability; I have always felt we should use the technology of the age we live in for the improvement of mankind. I would like to thank everyone who has ever worked in the office for contributing to our bank of ideas, and for helping to make it an enjoyable and humanistic place.”

dynamic, open-plan interior. Instead of a large central core formed of


lifts and staircases, services are pushed to the edge with the staff at the core. Key design features include the ‘Vortex’ – a dramatic double-height space created by three curved timber shells, the ‘Pantry’ – a large concourse and café space with views across the City, and a 210 metre-high bronze ‘ramp’ linking open-plan office floors. Pioneering technologies include


multi-function ceilings fitted with 2.5 million


polished aluminium ‘petals’ to regulate acoustics, temperature and light. Fosters also developed innovative power,


lighting, water and ventilation systems to utilise waste products, respond to the building’s external environment and adapt to occupancy patterns. RIBA concluded: “This ground-breaking


project demonstrates what is possible through close collaboration between highly-skilled, imaginative architects and a sophisticated, civic-minded client.”
