Winners of the RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards announced

 December 2006 The

 winners of the RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards 2006 in association with Atkins were announced last night in a ceremony at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). These prestigious awards promote excellence in the study of architecture, reward talent, and offer a range of opportunities to the international architects of the future. The awards are supported by iGuzzini, Paul Davis and Partners, and the SOM Foundation. An exhibition of the students’ winning work will be on show at the RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London W1 from 7 December to 31 January 2007 before travelling to Canterbury from 11 January and on to venues around the country throughout 2007. House at Gallion's Reach by Gillian Lambert Gillian Lambert from the University of Westminster was awarded the Silver Medal for her project House at Gallion’s Reach, and Brian Macken from the Mackintosh School of Architecture won the Bronze Medal for the project Kelvin Archive. Tim O’Callaghan from the University of Westminster won the Dissertation Medal for his work CenterParcs. Each of the medallists receives a prize of £1,250. Schools of architecture offering RIBA validated courses around the world were asked to nominate two of their best student design projects at Part 1 (first degree), two at Part 2 (second degree) and one dissertation for consideration for the annual awards. The Bronze Medal is awarded to a Part 1 student and the Silver Medal to a Part 2 student; the Dissertation Medal is awarded for the best exploration of different subjects, methodologies and presentations. Gillian Lambert’s House at Gallion’s Reach is a design for a house that acts as a laboratory for an architect preoccupied with weather. Situated at the mouth of the River Thames, the house is partly open to the elements and the interiors celebrate the unpredictable and dynamic nature of the external conditions.

 Kelvin Archive by Brian Macken Brian Macken’s Kelvin Archive proposes a home for the archives of Lord Kelvin, one of a series of scientific, cultural and political archives owned by the University of Glasgow. The design provides bespoke storage and study facilities for the research community. CenterParcs by Tim O'Callaghan Tim O’Callaghan’s dissertation, CenterParcs, charts the evolution of the CenterParcs formula from the very first parks in the Netherlands, looking at the architectural influences, and the possibility of a further growth into a permanent community. 28 design projects were shortlisted for the Silver and Bronze Medals, and judged by practitioners involved in both architectural practice and education. Chaired by Simon Allford, the RIBA’s Vice-President for Education, the design project judges were Paul Finch OBE, CABE Commissioner and editor of the Architectural Review; Deborah Saunt of DSDHA architects; and Vedran Mimica, Associate Dean of the Berlage Institute Postgraduate Laboratory of Architecture. The jury for the Dissertation Medal, was chaired by Professor Sarah Chaplin, Head of the School of Architecture and Landscape at Kingston University, and comprised Professor Li Shi Qiao of Chinese University of Hong Kong’s Architecture School; Professor Robert Kronenburg of the University of Liverpool; Dr Igea Troiani of Oxford Brookes University; and Tom Dyckhoff, Architecture and Design Critic at The Times. Jack Pringle, President of the RIBA, said: “The RIBA President’s Medals celebrate the outstanding talent demonstrated in projects that are emanating from architectural schools today. The RIBA is particularly proud of its international involvement in architectural education and is delighted with the very high calibre of projects and dissertations being submitted.” Keith Clarke, CEO of Atkins, said: “This is a terrifically exciting time to be an architect, with increasing demand around the world for new thinking in building design. As one of the world’s leading design houses, Atkins is involved in a host of major national and international projects that are pushing the boundaries of design, sustainability and technology. We recognise our responsibility to the industry, which is why we are once again sponsoring the RIBA President’s Medals – to encourage innovation and creativity in future generations of architects.” In addition to the design and dissertation medals, the following awards were also announced at the event: The Serjeant Awards for Excellence in Drawing at Part 1 and 2 were awarded to Kumiko Hirayama for 21st Century Symbiotic Farm and Gillian Lambert for House at Gallion’s Reach, both from the University of Westminster, who received book tokens for £250 each. The Skidmore Owings and Merrill (SOM) Foundation Travelling Fellowships at Part 1 and Part 2, of £1,250 each, were won by Max Khalen from the Architectural Association for his project From bundling to beehive and Gillian Lambert from Westminster for The House at Gallions Reach. The judges were Roger Kallman, Dan Ringelstein and Ross Wimer from SOM, Colin Fournier from the Bartlett School of Architecture and Brett Steele from the Architectural Association. Xenia Adjoubei, commended for her Bronze category project The Photographer’s Gallery, and Angela Hopcraft of London Metropolitan University, commended in the Silver Medal category for her project Women’s Hostel, were awarded the iGuzzini Travelling Awards for innovative use of lighting in architecture at Part 1 and 2. These travelling awards consist of a visit to the iGuzzini headquarters in Recanati, Italy, for the students and the practitioners involved in their architectural education. For the first time, as part of its sponsorship, Atkins will be offering a one-year placement with its London design team. This will be geared towards a year-out or graduate student who will have the opportunity to work on UK and international projects.

The 2006 RIBA President’s Medals event also saw the launch of the inaugural RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship of £10,000, providing students with another opportunity for travelling and broadening their experience during their studies. -ends- Notes to editors: 1.
