BBC: "Which Riba Stirling Prize 2014 building is your favourite?" (Bet the New Parts of Brent Cross Shopping Centre, Expanding under Barnet's Corrupt Planning Consent Covering Several Square Miles, Never Features)

"The UK's most prestigious prize for new buildings, the Riba Stirling Prize, will be awarded on 16 October. BBC News Online, in partnership with Riba, is taking a look at each of the contenders for the prize. The London School of Economics Saw Swee Hock Student Centre was designed by O'Donnell and Tuomey Architects.

"Standing in the middle of medieval London streets and period properties, its sharp edges and irregular geometric facets stand out from its surroundings. At the same time, the red brick structure has also been designed to fit in.

"The Royal Institute of British Architects (Riba) has described it as a 'lesson in mobilising the limitations of a site into a startlingly original building which makes a massive contribution to its townscape' [can you mobilise a limitation?]."
