The New Library, Magdalene College by Niall McLaughlin Architects
A brief to create a college library with a lifespan of 400 years – to replace a library gifted to Magdalene by Samuel Pepys 300 years previously – is no small task. Niall McLaughlin Architects have risen to the challenge with this deft and inspiring temple to learning at the University of Cambridge.
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.
