Highly commended and finalists, 2014 Student Design Awards

The projects presented by the 12 finalists in the competition were the products of a considerable amount of work undertaken throughout the students’ final academic year.

The impressive entries combined timeless types of architectural representation, such as hand sketches and physical models (model-making is still evidently a much-appreciated and enjoyed craft) with contemporary modes of digital production. Some of the large-scale renderings deserved space on a gallery wall – the scale and detail of the images was certainly proportionate to the ambition of the concepts they illustrated.
