This was the subject of intense discussion, with the judging panel returning to the portfolio time and time again.The quality of the drawing and the cross-disciplinary nature of the work (using tailoring techniques as a starting point from which to 'fashion'a building project) intrigued, delighted and slightly foxed the panel.The basic premise of folding and stitching to create real architectural space was convincingly expressed through the narrative of the portfolio.This is a project that required some effort to understand, but the sheer quality of the work made this process one of exploration rather than effort.One commented: 'The question is, which portfolios would I like to take home and study? This is one of them. In this work there is a lot to discover.'
'Architects should always be researching, questioning, doubting. This is a good example of this' Wiel Arets
