On 16 October we will hear who has won the 2014 Stirling Prize. Ahead of the announcement, RIBA Journal got the inside story of the six shortlisted projects from some of those who worked on them. Eleanor Young caught up with the key architects at the RIBA’s Stirling Stories event where, under the chairmanship of editor Hugh Pearman, they were telling the public the narratives behind the buildings. We learnt about jelly moulds, rights of light, wigwams, frozen water and permitting your users to be different. In just three questions we asked these architects to tell us something about what makes their building special.
