Influenced by Le Corbusier's Maisons Joual (1954-56) and sharing many external ornamental features such as the concrete gargoyles and spouts. Unlike other modernist projects of the era the Ham Common flats were privately funded and not social housing. This was Stirlings first major work prior to designing the Engineering Building at Leicester University in 1963 which established his reputation. Later celebrated works include the Cambridge History Library, the Performing Arts Centre at Cornell University, the Clore Gallery at Tate Britain, the Sackler Museum at Harvard, the Braun Factory in Germany, and his masterpiece Neue Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart. His design for the distinctive ship like building at No. 1 Poultry in the City was completed after his death. Born Glasgow (in either 1924 or 1926 according to different sources) but brought up in Liverpool and educated at Quarry Bank High School like a certain John Lennon. Studied architecture at the University of Liverpool. Died in 1992, sadly just days after receiving his knighthood. 4 years later the Stirling Prize was inaugurated by RIBA ( Royal Institute of British Architects) and has been awarded annually since to the architects of the building that has made the greatest contribution to the evolution ofarchitecture in the past year. It is the UKs most prestigious award in the field.
