A group of Canadian students has won a RIBA ideas competition for a sustainable regeneration project in the heart of Edinburgh. The competition, launched under the government's energy efficiency best practice programme, attracted interest from architects and students worldwide. More than 80 entrants explored the issues of environmental, social and economic sustainability on a site known locally as the 'Lochend Butterfly'.
The team, which includes Katherine Davey, Jaspal Atwal, Sasa Radulovic and Alyssa Schwann, receives a £10,000 prize. The winning designs are at the RIAS Gallery at 15 Rutland Square in Edinburgh until 3 May.
