Design Concrete competition winners 2022
On the 3rd March at Futurebuild, we were delighted to announce the winners of Design Concrete 2022, The Concrete Centre’s inaugural design competition for students of architecture and the built environment.
The competition brief challenged undergraduate students at Ravensbourne School of Architecture to design an innovative concrete pier located on the Woolwich river front, and asked for designs that explored principles of sustainable concrete design, structural efficiency, concrete mix options, climate change adaptation and promotion of biodiversity.
Design Concrete 2022 - winners announced
The judging panel reviewed lots of excellent submissions and wish to say a big thank you to all of the students who submitted their work, and their tutors.
A big congratulations to all of the students who took part.
First Prize was awarded to Shania Burrage, for her project “The Coal Pier”. The judges were particularly impressed with Shania’s use of low carbon, materially efficient light weight concrete shell structures to create a series of carefully crafted work and social spaces for the local community.
Second Prize was awarded to Agnieszka Cybulska, for her project “Yoga Islands”. The judges felt this project had a strong concept, with visual outcome and that Agneiszka demonstrated a clear understanding of concrete construction methods appropriate for the site and design.
Maggie Law was highly commended for her support of biodiversity through the use of concrete texture, form and permeability.
