Magdalene College New Library has won this year’s RIBA Stirling Prize

We are delighted to hear that Níall McLaughlin Architects’ ‘sophisticated’ new library at Cambridge’s Magdalene College has won this year’s RIBA Stirling Prize. This striking project shows off our standing seam roofing using 0.7mm VMZINC Quartz PLUS.

The ‘exquisitely detailed’ building at the 700-year-old University of Cambridge college houses a new library – open 24 hours a day – as well as an archive and an art gallery. The project, which the practice won following a competition in 2014, replaced study spaces in the neighbouring 17th-century Grade I-listed Pepys Library.
