Awards success for live projects

Students presented with RIBA North West London Society of Architects Student Awards

Cass students were presented with awards at the London regional student awards evening at RIBA on the 29th October.

The presentation evening brought together eight schools of architecture and eight branches of RIBA London. Students presented their projects and received cheques and certificates.

In July the jury for the RIBA NWLSA (North West London Society of Architects) ) student awards attended presentations by Undergraduate and Diploma Architecture projects at the Cass.

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

Postgraduate Diploma (RIBA Part 2): Josh Wyles of the Free Unit for The Forum, Whitegift Centre, Croydon

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.
