Hastings Pier Wins 2017 Riba Stirling Prize

Hastings Pier says… We are delighted to announce that Hastings Pier has won the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize. Hastings’ Pier is beautiful, completely unique, and a seamless blend of historical recognition and modern design. To have our Pier recognised at the very highest level is an extraordinary achievement – and this award belongs to the people of Hastings who came together to save this historic landmark and made it a beacon of a town’s regeneration. This prize places Hastings Pier in the pantheon of Britain’s most iconic buildings. The building is a unique example of collaboration and as such we would like to thank our architects dRMM, staff, volunteers, shareholders, visitors and incredible local community for their continued support and we are delighted that our Pier has written another page in the long book of our town’s famous history.

Ralph Town… Well done Hastings.A big plank IS a work of art…only joking.Its great for the town.Fantastic

Mick O’Dowd… Well done. Now let’s get together and raise the funds for a venue on The Pier to get the crowds in!

Pete Brazier… How?

Mick O’Dowd… Crowd funding maybe. Most people agree that there is a need for a covered venue. Maybe something like the old Triodom of yesteryear or something similar.

Barry Upton… Get a building on the end that does live music and other covered events. That’s how you make money. Dddeeerrrr
