Wilkinson Eyre's Gateshead Millennium Bridge has won the 2003 Stirling Prize for architecture. There were rumblings of dissatisfaction over this on the night - is it architecture or is it engineering? Should the same practice win the Prize two years in a row (they won last year with their Magna Centre in Rotherham)? Why does it take as long as it possibly can to get from one bank to the other? Isn't it a bit of a one-liner, albeit a curved line?
