Announcing our student architect winner

The winner of the student architect essay competition, selected by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners is…….


…Rob Pollard from the University of Kent for his essay: The History of the Architect as a Profession.

The judges agreed that his essay

“…should appeal to a broad audience encountering the industry for the first time. It is well researched, reliable and informative, giving enough depth to shed light on the role of an architect and how it has developed over the years.”

Rob will receive £500 and will be asked to write a blog post for our home page.

The five runners-up, commended for their great contributions to the site are:

Congratulations to them all. Certificates of commendation will be in the post shortly.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the competition. Over the next few weeks we’ll add as many of your essays to the site as we can (after our editors have done a bit of polishing and checking).


So now you’ve got the hang of it, why not add more articles to the site? We’re a WIKI after all and we’d love to hear from you. See our list of Articles Required.
