Team behind Hastings Pier redesign win prize

The team behind the regeneration of Hastings Pier has won the country's most prestigious architectural award - the RIBA Stirling Prize.

The landmark was one of six finalists - including the Chatham Historic Dockyard in Kent. The Sussex pier won for what the judges described as "a seven-year heroic collaboration to turn the smouldering landmark into a vibrant public space". Architects DRMM said they were completely blown away by the win.
