Evelyn Grace Academy



Evelyn Grace Academy

The Stirling Prize winning academy building by Zaha Hadid.

Location: 255 Shakespeare Road, Brixton, SE24 0QN

Description: The Evelyn Grace Academy is an ambitious secondary school in Lambeth that opened in 2008 and then moved into their award-winning building on Shakespeare Road in 2010.

The building, designed by architect Zaha Hadid, was awarded the 2011 Stirling Prize by RIBA, the Royal Institute of British Architects. RIBA described the 37.5m academy project as a highly stylized zig-zag of steel and glass.

The architects had to accommodate four schools under a single academy umbrella.

With a relatively small location and sport as one of the academy's special subjects, they spectacularly put a 100-metre running track through the middle of the site, under a bridge between two school blocks.

The school is funded by the Department for Education and owned and operated by ARK Schools, a registered charity.

Hadid grew up in Iraq before leaving at the age of 17. She set up her own practice in London in 1980 but the academy was its first major project in the capital.
