Stanton Williams top of class at Architecture in Schools Awards

Stanton Williams and a group of 14-15 year olds from north London won the top prize at the Architecture in Schools programme awards

The Architecture in Schools programme partnered 35 secondary school classes with architects from 32 different firms to develop ideas for eco-homes and to meet this year’s competition brief to design sustainable housing.

The overall winner of the Architecture in Schools 2010 Design Competition was Alperton Community School, coupled with Stanton Williams Architects.

Awards were also given to other schools for the presentation of ideas, drawing, model-making, research, design development, imaginative design and sustainability.

The award for Engaging Architect was won jointly by Sam Kamal-Uddin, ESA and by Malcolm Dickson, London Borough of Camden working with James Bazeley & Robert King, David Miller Architects.

Perry Hooper, an Associate at Grimshaw Architects took part in this year’s programme. ‘Encouraging students to take an active interest in buildings and their surroundings is beneficial to the profession,’ he said. ‘It is also a challenge for architects like myself as well as being rewarding.’

John Anderson, Chairman of Berkeley Homes and Juliet Sprake, Senior Lecturer in Design and Technology at Goldsmiths University presented the awards in an event at The Wellcome Trust on Monday 6 December that was attended by 200 guests and more than 50 architects.
