Announcing our student architect winner
…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.”
The five runners-up, commended for their great contributions to the site are:
- Beta City :Temporary, Collaborative City Design. By Shea McGibbon, Queens University Belfast.
- Monument and Context. Also by Shea McGibbon, Queens University Belfast.
- Living in the hyperreal Post-Modern city. By Corina Angheloiu, Sheffield School of Architecture.
- How and why did new building types emerge in nineteenth-century Britain? By Stacey Lewis, University of Kent.
- Living façade. By Oliver Howell, University of Southampton (yes again, some subjects cross architecture and engineering).
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.
