Eight entrants have been shortlisted for the AJ/Saint-Gobain sketch contest on the theme of ‘habitation’.
The finalists were chosen from almost 200 entrants, who submitted more than 400 sketches between them.
- Hannah Carding, illustrator
- Rebecca Crompton, art and design teacher
- Stefan de Bevers, Dutch architect
- Derek Draper, architect
- Theo Games Petrohilos, part 3 student
- Mohna Jolly, architect
- Pedro Serrano, designer
- Felicity Steers, landscape architect
Contest judge George Saumarez-Smith, director at Adam Architecture, said: ‘We were looking for something that is immediate, that has come as an emotional response from looking at something.’
The other judges were: AJ deputy editor Rory Olcayto; technical development manager at Saint-Gobain UK Mark Allen; Chris Dyson, managing director, Chris Dyson Architects and Paul Middleton, architect and the winner of last year’s Sketch a Facade competition.
The winner will be announced at an event on 26 February. The best sketch will win an iPad Mini and a trip to Saint-Gobain’s research and development office and its DomoLab innovation experience centre in Paris. The runner-up will receive an annual subscription to the AJ and The Architectural Review and a set of drawing pencils.
