Manser Medal 2012 shortlist

The objective of the RIBA Manser Medal has always been to encourage innovation in house design, to show how social and technological ambitions can be met by intelligent design and to produce exemplars to be taken up by the wider housebuilding industry. The prize is named after Michael Manser, former President of the RIBA, who is well known for his own steel and glass house designs.

The 2012 shortlist was judged by Michael Manser, Stuart Piercy of Piercy and Co, Tony Chapman, RIBA Head of Awards, Lady Jill Ritblat and David Scott.
