Exclusive: 3DReid student prize 2012 winner revealed
Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture Part II student Andrew Piggott has won this year’s 3DReid Student Prize
Piggott’s ‘incredibly detailed’ scheme for a culinary school in Carnareggio, Venice was selected ahead of six other students vying for the prestigious annual award, winning him the £1,000 first prize.
The judges, which included AJ editor Christine Murray, Apprentice star Gabrielle Omar and Daisy Froud of the AOC, were impressed by the ‘beautifully communicated, well-considered and comprehensive scheme’ aimed at reinvigorating a dying district of Venice with a market garden and cooking school.
The runner-up prize worth £250 was handed to Daniel Hanna of Liverpool John Moores University for his Terrarium eco-tower project.
The online vote was won by Melisa Ramos of the University of Birmingham for her Eco Anarchy Centre.
The jury also featured 3DReid’s David Stanford, Paul Warner and Tom Hewitt as well as Morgan Grylls, who was shortlisted for last year’s prize and is now working for the practice.
