Two of these projects were selected for the award and will be shown at the RIBA in November 2013 . The successful projects were:

Undergraduate: Mobile Work-Shop, Abbey Gardens and Hayes A Studio 3 group project - which was presented by students Halil Yorel + Riam Ibrahem

The other projects considered for the award were the: Sunbloc House for the Solar Decathlon in China, a group project by Unit 4 which was presented by student Nadezda Krupska. And the Lyndhurst Primary School Project presented by James Retief of Studio 4.

All of the nominated and successful projects are Live Projects with an entrepreneurial character which are still ongoing or have the potential to go beyond the academic year 2012/13.
