Lucy Vete of the University of Auckland has won the annual design competition for final year students from the New Zealand's three schools of architecture. Based in the ideas, stories, traditions and history of Tonga, Lucy's project, 'Shifting Grounds', imagines a trajectory of social spaces along the north western axis of Tupou Lahi road, within the heart of Nuku’alofa.
Two highly commended awards were also conferred at this year’s awards – to LiWen Choy, from the University of Auckland, and Gerard Finch, from Victoria University of Wellington.
