Acclaimed store picks up RIBA recognition.
The Future Systems designed store was one of four West Midlands projects among 63 winners from across Britain and the EU. They will form a long list from which the winner of Britain's biggest award for architecture, the Stirling Prize, will be selected in October.
The other West Midlands winners are Compton Verney, the 18th Century mansion near Kineton which has been converted into an art museum for the Peter Moores Foundation by Stanton Williams; Coventry's Phoenix Initiative city centre regeneration scheme (MacCormac Jamieson Prichard), and The Moat at Hereford Cathedral Junior School (Jamieson Associates Architects).
The judges describe Selfridges as 'clearly one of the most provocative of all this year's submissions because of its uncompromising and unprecedented outward appearance'.
