Something rotten in Denmark

  • Comment

With excitement, Platform 5 found out last week that its Mapledene Road project (AJ 15.01.09) had won a competition hosted by a Danish homes and gardens website – www.bolius.dk

This was quite a surprise, as Platform 5 hadn’t entered the competition. It turned out that an enterprising student called Senad Gvozden had submitted the scheme as his own work and run off with the DK30,000 (£3,550) prize money.

Any respect due to Mr Gvozden’s skills at deception was wiped out by his disturbing Photoshop work. Gvozden had improved the images, apparently taken from Platform 5’s website, with the addition of a boy and his cat.

A bit of detective work on Facebook revealed that Gvozden was a civil engineering student at the University of Aalborg, Denmark. The people at Bolius have been informed, but don’t seem too concerned and have left the project up on their website, so there’s still the chance Gvozden could win the overall prize of DK75,000 (£8,800).
