RIBA Stirling Prize 2017: Hastings Pier crowned UK's best new building

1st November 2017

Categories: Latest News

Hastings Pier rebuilt after a devastating fire has been crowned the UK's best new building.

The pier dating from 1872, was ravaged by fire in 2010 and reopened in April 2016, beat five other buildings to the Royal Institute of British Architects (Riba) Stirling Prize.

Riba president Ben Derbyshire described the "stunning, flexible new pier" as "a masterpiece of regeneration".

He also praised Hastings' locals for finding 3000 shareholders to buy £100 stakes in "the people's pier".

The new structure contains timber reclaimed from the original pier and has scorched wood cladding on its visitor centre, which has a viewing deck.
