RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize 2012 Shortlist
Five houses by up-and-coming UK architects are on the shortlist for the RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize 2012. This Royal Institute of British Architects special award remembers the hugely controversial and socially influential racial murder of teenager Lawrence, an aspiring architect, in London in 1993, by encouraging young architects working with a budget under £1 million.
