It was nice to see Chipperfield’s Hepworth gallery being nominated for the 2012 Stirling Prize. For me this must be one of the favourites. Not only does it meet the various Vitruvian ideals for a good Architecture, but it’s regenerated a particularly run down area of Wakefield. Other winning features for me are the high value durable design and the way it delivers Art to the proletariat. It’s also one those rare designs that really looks effective at any time of day in any weather conditions.
