Eyes on the prize

Nope, it’s not a fitting for a new designer wimple, it was architect Niall McLaughlin’s attempt to give the client of the Stirling-shortlisted Bishop Edward King Chapel a view of the completed building. McLaughlin created a scale model and cut a head-shaped opening into its card base so nuns could ‘insert’ themselves into it. Such imaginative approaches to the design and its communication are probably what won him the commission in the first place; but we’ll have to wait and see if the strategies convince the prize jury as much as they convinced the priory.
