ROTHSCHILD SHORTLISTED FOR PROPERTY GONG

ROTHSCHILD’S new office block has been shortlisted for a prestigious Royal Institute of British Architects Sterling Prize. New Court, designed by OMA with Allies and Morrison and completed last year, has picked up plaudits for opening up views of Wren’s St Stephen Walbrook church and showing off the bank’s art collection within its walls. But it faces stiff competition for the gong: the Olympic Stadium is also among the six shortlisted buildings.
