Liverpool's Everyman Theatre wins architecture prize

has won a prestigious architecture award - the Riba Stirling Prize 2014.
The venue beat five other buildings to win the honour including The Shard. It's the UK's tallest building stretching 310 metres high above the London skyline. Workers found a fox on the 72nd floor when the tower was being built!

The unusual looking Library of Birmingham was also nominated for the prize. More than 300,000 things were borrowed from the library in the first year it was open. The most valuable item kept there is worth £2 million! The library was voted Britain's best new building by readers of the BBC News website.

The London Aquatics Centre was built for the 2012 Olympic Games. Its three pools contain 10 million litres of water - and the huge roof rests on just three concrete supports!
