Congratulations to O’Donnell + Tuomey, who have been shortlisted for the 2014 RIBA Stirling Prize for their design of the London School of Economics Saw Swee Hock Student Centre.
The Stirling Prize is given by the Royal Institute of British Architects and considered the most prestigious architecture award in the United Kingdom. The prize is awarded to the architects of the building which has made the greatest contribution to British architecture in the past year.
The design team has also won the RIBA Gold Medal, the lifetime achievement award, which is approved personally by 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’.
You can view the work of O’Donnell + Tuomey at SO Fine Art Editions with their ‘Falling Dansu’ bureau, a piece that transforms the traditional bureau desk. Executed in ash, suspended via wall-mount, the writing surface flips open to reveal an inviting array of nooks and crannies.
