A £10,000 prize is up for grabs in a competition launched by Crittall Windows for the best use of its steel windows in new-build and refurbishment projects.Open until the end of 2003, the 'Movement for Steel Design Award'will be judged by a high-profile team of Cesar Pelli as chair, plus John McAslan, Joanna van Heyningen and Niall McLaughlin.

The company is also planning to award a substantial bursary to an architecture student, starting in autumn 2003.Details are still being finalised, but the place will be at Plymouth University and will, says managing director John Pyatt, be worth 'several thousand pounds'.

The student will also be involved in the company's research work.

With projects including the Boots D10 building, the Bauhaus, Fallingwater and the Hoover Building, Crittall has amassed an important legacy of early 20th century architecture. It is hoping to facilitate the launch of a Crittall Society, to promote research into these projects.
