Manchester students scoop Slovenia pavilion comp

Two Manchester students have won an international competition to design a pavilion in Slovenia

William Burgess and Jack Richards, both Part 1 graduates from Manchester School of Architecture, were chosen from 80 entries to the contest.

They will develop their scheme in the medieval town of Žužemberk.

The competition was organised as part of the European Architecture Students Assembly 2013. It was judged by a committee including architect and University of Ljubljana professor Maruša Zorec. 

The brief called for a partially covered structure next to a 16th Century castle, positioned on the site of a church that was demolished in the 1950s.

The winning proposal aims to redefine a municipal square that was historically separated from the market square by the church. Its kinked form creates a sheltered garden with views of the castle and down to the river valley.

The students will travel to Slovenia in August to build the pavilion with a team of 20 students and the help of local craftsmen.
