This project, focusing on issues within the contemporary construction industry, caught the eye of the judging panel early in the selection process. Its straightforward simplicity, and the clarity with which the ideas were presented, drew universal praise.This student demonstrated a clear understanding of construction practice, particularly with regard to building with timber.Even the manner in which the model was made, with an unexpected attention to junctions and corner detailing, made for a single image that almost managed to explain the entire project at once.The spatial implications of the project were also well-considered.The panel felt that the project was 'undersold'on research, however.Although a highly competent piece of work, it might have benefited from a more exploratory and theoretical approach at the outset.
'This is a very well worked-out project in terms of its spatial implications. It's very, very well done. Almost the whole idea is explained in one model shot' Wiel Arets
