A watersport centre at Rutland Water with highly polished undulating timber to reflect the ripple effect of water, has won David Torch Benning the riba Akzo Nobel Woodcare student competition. He beat 200 entrants with his design for a geodesic steel roof over a 70m swimming pool, an outdoor lagoon, diving pods, a restaurant and a promenade. The winner studied at University of North London and did Part II at the Bartlett. A second competition is being run later this month. Details 0113 2341335.
