The winners of the architecture prizes at the Royal Academy of Arts’ Summer Exhibition were celebrated at a special dinner last week hosted by sponsors Lend Lease and AJ

An ‘exquisite’ laser-cut model by Ben Cowd, Thomas Hopkins and Sara Shafiei won the £10,000 main prize and there were commendations for a model showing Carmody Groarke’s competition-winning Lake Windermere Steamboat Museum scheme, Peter Barber’s ‘model for a decent neighbourhood’ contained in a suitcase and Allies and Morrison’s triptych of the Olympic Park from 2000 to 2012 to 2024.

There was also a £5,000 award for Best First-Time Exhibitor went to Article 25.

The charity’s kit of parts, by Xenia Georgiou, Michael Ruthenbury, the Article 25 Design Team and 4D Modelshop for the Gola Rainforest National Park headquarters in Sierra Leone, was shown as a completed model alongside a case containing the constituent elements and manual needed for its assembly.
