Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the running for best new UK building

It's been shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize Award.

The Weston, Yorkshire Sculpture Park could be crowned UK’s best new building.

It was described by the regional jury as:

A superbly detailed and exemplary building that doesn't shout too loudly; it’s both sensitive to its context and purpose, whilst also being a sustainable building that just quietly gets on with it. It is a building that many people will take to their heart; it has great warmth and will become a favourite destination to meet, to hold family occasions or events as well as being a gateway to the world-class Yorkshire Sculpture Park.”

It's been shortlisted along with five other buildings. The winner will be announced on Tuesday 8th October 2019 at the Roundhouse in London.
