Duke's design prizes

  • Comment

The Duke of Edinburgh has handed out six awards for life-time achievements in design. The winner of the 40-year-old Prince Philip Designers Prize was engineer Professor Bill Hills, who founded the Engineering Design Centre for Marine and other Made-to-Order Products at Newcastle University. Runners-up were Alan Tye who developed new theories of architecture and interior design based on the human body; Julian Brown for his plastic designs; Bill Moggridge, designer of the world's first laptop computer; Wally Olins for corporate-identity designs and McLaren F1 car-designer Gordon Murray.
