Evelyn Grace Academy wins RIBA Stirling Prize 2011

The Evelyn Grace Academy in London has won the RIBA Stirling Prize 2011. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, Evelyn Grace is made up of four schools under one academy umbrella. The school's speciality is sport, however before the rebuild it lacked any opportunity for significant outdoor sport. The architects responded to this with creativity and intelligence by creating a running track through its grounds. 

The design generates natural patterns of division within highly functional spaces which give each of the four smaller schools a distinct identity, internally and externally.

The award recognises the best building in Europe which was designed or built in britain.

About us

As children we had the freedom of imagination and creativity with no boundaries. At school and as adults we are encouraged away from imagination and day dreaming, to think in a structured, process driven way. We disagree with this. We challenge this. Imagination and creativity are gifts that we are all given, and we can develop and encourage them, not throw them away. Free Thinking® is our approach to life, to creativity, to advertising campaigns, to graphic design. We challenge the way things are done, created, agreed, made.
