Youth parliament & centre for urban dialogue lead student award winners
July 14 2017
Paschalis Kyrtsopoulis of Strathclyde University was named best fifth year student for a ‘vigorous’ proposal for a Youth Parliament and Ministry of Education while Naomi Rubbra of the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture was acknowledged as best third year student courtesy of a proposal to produce dialogues for better cities. Hannah Cattanach of Robert Gordon University secured an urban design award for a brick residential scheme with ground floor retail while fellow RGU student Robert Wightman landed the Andy MacMillan drawing award for a fish farm and visitor centre.
They were amongst 15 projects to be recognised following a quick-fire presentation where each student shared their project, processes and inspiration with an audience of jurors, the public and other students.
A&DS chair Karen Anderson said “We are continuously looking to develop how we highlight Scotland’s emerging talent, and these awards – promoted jointly with the RIAS – are an excellent opportunity to showcase the high standard emerging from our schools of architecture. I am particularly pleased that we were able to hear directly from the students in our new presentation-based event – Chiff-Chaff. The students presented confidently and were able to clearly demonstrate their thinking and their ideas and I want to congratulate everyone who took part.”
An exhibition featuring the winning work is now underway at The Lighthouse.
