It's no secret I'm no fan of the new Birmingham Central Library on broad Street and my reasons for my dislike are not entirely to do with the building itself.

So this post is not in defence of that building but about hypocrisy,  when once again RIBA goes against public opinion and votes the Stirling Prize 2014 to The Everyman Theatre Liverpool. When it was built RIBA went into fits of ecstasy over the Central Library now when given the choice of they present the Stirling Prize to what is basically a box, instead of Birmingham's Brillo Pad.
