Bloomberg HQ wins Stirling Prize 2018

Bloomberg’s European HQ designed by Foster + Partners has been awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize 2018.

Encompassing an entire block of central London, the Bloomberg HQ is formed of two blocks connected by a bridge. Great slabs of Derbyshire sandstone and fins of hand-patinated Japanese bronze form the grand facade of the ten-storey building, which claims to be the “world’s most sustainable office”.

“From our first discussions to the final details of the project, Mike Bloomberg and I had a ‘meeting of minds’ on every aspect of the project – its sustainable focus, commitment to innovation and drive to create the best workplace for Bloomberg employees,” said Norman Foster.

“The RIBA Stirling Prize is a testament to the incredible collaborative spirit that has underpinned the entire project from start to finish.”
