Rotating artist studios shortlisted for Stephen Lawrence Prize

The Observatory, a pair of mobile artist studios, has been shortlisted for the RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize 2016.

Funded by the Marco Goldschmied Foundation, The Stephen Lawrence Prize was established in memory of the teenager who was setting out on the road to becoming an architect when he was murdered in 1993.

The prize, which includes £5,000, rewards the best examples of projects that have a construction budget of less than £1 million, and is intended to encourage fresh talent working with smaller budgets.

The jury will now visit The Observatory in its current location at Mottisfont National Trust Estate and the winning project will be announced at the Stirling Prize Party in October.
