  • Comment

Nandi Marshal Han has won this year’s KPF/AF Student Travel Award with his study of urbanisation and public space in Lhasa, Tibet

The prize, sponsored by KPF and organised by the Architecture Foundation (AF), includes a work placement at KPF and a £1,250 bursary to fund further research through travel. Philip Turner, a student at Newcastle University, was awarded the £1,000 second prize plus a work placement for his project ‘Palate’s Palace – Designing for Uncertainty’ in Beijing.

KPF principal John Bushell said he was impressed with both prize winners: ‘[Part II student] Han’s project shows a strong and thorough research background, and a good understanding of the urban scale. The mapping work and inventive fusion of traditional and contemporary building approaches were particularly impressive.’

Bushell added: ‘Philip Turner’s submission impressed us with its sophisticated presentation, which displays significant ambition and confidence. His proposed research trip to China will offer Philip a promising outlet for expanding his work.’
