We declare a Third World War against individual rights. To be means to belong
KR The scheme questioned how cultural tourism, through architectural intervention, could be linked to community involvement. A Second World War Flying School was incorporated into a proposal to provide craft workshops, market stalls and performance venues. A very sensitive project that investigated the polemical aspects of the project and was careful not to alienate the locals or the tourists.
WA The scheme was selected because of its attempt to identify and solve a real-life situation through dialogue with the community and the incorporation of existing community activities with the recycling of historical buildings. Unfortunately this was the only project from overseas that was awarded a commendation.

LV An interesting investigation into a political and social problem translated into an intelligent architectural programme. The proposed building extends elegantly into the sea and demonstrates an interesting use of materials.

KR Carter's proposal for a zoo on the Dutch tourist island of Terscheling developed a strip of land where she floated a series of concrete plates entwined with viewing platforms and subterranean tunnels. This programme ingeniously used the body as the point of inquiry, by devising an interactive body piece that relayed a physical connection resulting in a sonic feedback loop.
EE An intriguing starting point of investigation, demonstrated in the student's use of the personal to experience the non-tangible physical environment and develop the results into a convincing project.
WA The student's project questioned the relationships between architecture, object and representation. A very provocative project, the Motel looked at the dichotomous relationship between speed and pace, the virtual and the physical.
EE In Part I, the projects exceeded all expectations across the board and this is a very good example of that competence.
