Natural Dye Factory andAromatherapy Bath-House
The project is the result of a sophisticated research programme into how industrial and leisure processes can be mutually supportive and exist within an ecologically and economically viable flower garden. The project marries the two contrasting scales of investigation from a large- scale urban proposal to the minutiae of architectural experience.
WA Outstanding use of digital media.
LV Outstanding in comparison to the other work because of the depth of exploration and completeness of the project from the intellectual idea to the presentation. An incredible portfolio of work supported every design stage, demonstrating an in-depth design analysis from start to finish.
EE The work was incredibly professional. Exceptionally and vigorously carried through.
WE The winner demonstrated a very clear idea by taking a real competition site from the Living in the City Competition. The project made a detailed topographical contextual analysis while considering the issues of employment, food production and development potential. All these factors were considered in great depth and with great elegance. From speculation to realisation the same level of rigorous analysis was carried out, unmatched by any others selected.

Future Urban Sports
WA A bold architectural statement that transposed the energy of sport into the vigour of the architecture. Elegant structural systems reflect the speed and power of the games and sports, such as the Perpetual Sports Hall.
KR The sports centre demonstrates an equal fascination with developing the programmatic criteria within an architectural idea and solving technical problems posed by situating the centre on a challenging site, Redcliff Wharf in Bristol.
EE I particularly enjoyed the development process which used collages to explore the aesthetic potential of individual pieces of machinery, part sculptural and part explorations of the surreal aspects of the factories of modern fitness.

Green Bowl Park
KR The proposal, an urban park in King's Cross, tackled the study of large-scale interventions in London placed at major transportation facilities. A proposal very much in the Hans Hollein genre, the scheme tackled a bold urban-design proposal to re-landscape the area with an undulating park complete with safari animals.
KR A unique proposal that questioned issues of the landscaping in the city, proposing a park with edges that lifted up like a volcanic crater, rising above the city.
