Join us for the Building Stories Season 1 finale.

Ending on a high, our first season of awards talks will come to a close, focusing on the 2021 Stirling Prize winner, Kingston University London – Town House.  

Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara from Grafton architects will be our special guests, at this in-person event taking place in the courtyard of the Town House. Come and celebrate with the winners of the 2020 RIBA Royal Gold Medal and the international Pritzker Prize.

Welcoming back students after more than a year of COVID-19, the Town House is a confirmation of the value of a live university experience. A progressive new model for the design of higher education buildings, the dynamic student Town House expertly captures the spirit of learning and the value of community cohesion.
