Two students from the Cambridge School of Architecture, Ben Burleigh and Kyle Buchanan, have landed the £2,000 first prize in this year's Corus Undergraduate Architects Award with this 'Brixton Windmill' project. The duo's designs, set around an existing windmill in Brixton, south London, address the brief 'how can we use architecture to communicate global environmental issues to our communities?'

The winning scheme proposes the use of turbulent wind flows to generate electricity and also to provide an understanding of the energy cycle. Surplus energy would be used to light up the scheme. The judges said they admired 'the calculations of wind energy, as well as the ideas for the open spaces and connections with nature'.
