Leeds Society of Architects (LSA) has the great pleasure to host this prestigious event in Leeds which will bring together the RIBA Stirling Prize shorlist in the pre-cursor to the awards evening in London.  The event is scheduled to take place in the centre of Leeds on 19th October 2017 from 6.30pm at the contemporary Arts Venue, Trinity Church, Leeds.
