Out of interest, has anyone seen the RIBA Sterling Prize shortlist? They're all hideous.

I have serious concerns for the future of European architecture if this is the best out there.

Instead of the cream of the crop, did they decide to be "fair" and pick the shit scraped from the bottom of the barrel this year?

NEO Bankside looks somewhat interesting, and would be decent if the windows were all the same color. I have a feeling it's going to win.

Darbishire Place looks pretty solid, but it's certainly not prize-worthy. Oh and it's social housing, which means it will be in disrepair within a couple years.

I could talk about Maggie's Lanakshire's ugly hollow bricks, but I won't because I have no idea why a place for cancer patients looks contrary to the environment where I would want to be if I had to suffer for such an awful condition.

All the educational buildings are shit.

^ Those last two are quite postmodern, but very interesting nonetheless!
