Bath graduate wins 3DReid Student Prize

  • Comment

Michael Lewis, a graduate from Bath School of Architecture, has won this year’s 3DReid Student Prize for the best Part II student in the country 

Lewis, an architectural assistant at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios in Bath, won the prize with his design concept for a construction school on the site of a dilapidated tile factory in Porto, Portugal.

Originally from Porthcawl, he saw off seven other finalists including a joint entry from an 8-strong team from the Bartlett’s Unit 17.

In total 29 schools nominated students for the awards - the highest-profile, practice-backed student prize in the UK which is now into its 11th year.

The winner was selected by a jury panel which featured Mark Taylor, chief executive of 3DReid; Barry Weekes, head of design at Heathrow; and David Porter, president of the Architectural Association.

Weekes said: ‘The quality of work and thinking that is emerging from our schools of architecture is simply excellent and gives me great confidence for the future of British design.

‘We see this as the perfect opportunity to support students of design and help give them that first step towards a successful career. Well done to Michael and to all the finalists for their efforts.’

The other shortlisted entries were:

  • Matthew Kernan of Queen’s University, Belfast
  • Bruce Doran of Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow
  • Kristian James of Manchester School of Architecture
  • Jack Scaffardi of The University of Newcastle upon Tyne
  • Charlotte Eley of The University of Sheffield
