RIBA Stirling Prize 2022: Hackney New Primary School and 333 Kingsland Road



Hackney New Primary School and 333 Kingsland Road by Henley Halebrown

Hackney New Primary School is an immense sculptural pink brute of a building, punctuating a busy junction on the Kingsland Road in London, with a certain civic pride. The project comprises a school enabled by a new housing block, both on a single, tight urban site. Its size clearly challenges educational and environmental norms, with the elimination of internal corridors forming an inner world of closely-knit classrooms and a courtyard which is very much the heart of the school in the same way the hall was in the Victorian board school.

The RIBA Stirling Prize is the UK’s most prestigious architecture award given to the architect of the building thought to be the most significant of the year for the evolution of architecture and the built environment.
