The World’s Best Learning Building 2011 at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona

bldg04Designed by Stanton Williams architects, the Sainsbury Laboratory was selected by a panel of esteemed architects and designers, beating off competition from a shortlist of 17 entries. From a British perspective these included Zaha Hadid’s Evelyn Grace Academy, winner of this year’s Stirling Prize, Norman Foster’s Masdar Institute in the United Arab Emirates and the City of Westminster College by Schmidt Hammer and Lessen. The jury commended the project, saying: “This project connects building and landscape in a poetic and meaningful way. It is beautifully considered in terms of its human scale, and for activities for research and learning. The choice of materials displays a profound tactile sense.”
