I was delighted to learn of Hugh Broughton Architects/Faber Maunsell's victory in the Antarctic Research Station competition (AJ 21.07.05).

It was not only a tremendous effort, given the quality of the opposition, but potentially a significant turning point for Hugh Broughton. This is a smaller, high-quality design practice which has (with Faber Maunsell) won on merit.

To see it achieve a success like this is an inspiration for other practitioners with similar scale operations. Hugh has demonstrated how well an intelligent alliance and collaboration (with the use of first-class engineers) can work, and how best to bring to bear the unique skills and expertise of the architect.

We look forward to seeing the Antarctic designs evolving over the coming year and hope to see a lot more victories like this one.
