Rykwert and Partridge confirmed as judges for AJ Writing Prize

Eminent architectural critic Joseph Rykwert and Argent Group joint CEO David Partridge have been confirmed as judges for this year’s AJ/Berman Guedes Stretton Writing Prize.

Rykwert and Partridge will join Alan Berman, from Berman Guedes Stretton, and Christine Murray, editor of The Architects’ Journal, on the judging panel.

The competition celebrates new architectural writing and entrants must write an essay that discusses the question ‘Do architects have a duty beyond satisfying the demands of the client?’ Specific references should be made to existing, unbuilt or historic projects. Authors should be aged 35 or under on 1 October 2012.

The winning writer will receive £1,000 and the winning piece will be published in full in the AJ, with the writer commissioned to write a building study feature for the AJ.

Entries should not exceed 1,500 words and must be emailed to no later than 1 October 2012.

The AJ/Berman Guedes Stretton Writing Prize is sponsored by The Lead Sheet Association.
