Culturlann Ui Chanain in Derry ~ Londonderry shortlisted for Stirling Prize

Well done to Culturlann Ui Chanain in Derry, which has been nominated for the Stirling Prize - a first for a Northern Ireland building. Culturlann Ui Chanain is an Irish language centre teaching traditional music, dance and language. The building is located on a landlocked site on Great James Street in the city. At a cost of £4m, the cultural space opened in September 2010 and was designed by O'Donnell and Tuomey Architects.

The building has already been recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects in May and last year won an Architectural Association of Ireland award. It is now in the shortlist for the Stirling Prize with six other UK buildings: see images of all six at the Guardian. The winning finalist will be announced in October this year - PLACE will keep you updated on how Culturlann Ui Chanain gets on.
