Architect: ASD (London Metropolitan University)
Second-year architecture students gave up their Easter holiday to create this stage in the playground of Southwold School - which their tutor hopes will teach them 'the benefits of acting benevolently'. The stage is used for both curriculum performance and more impromptu acts of playtime theatricals from pupils. A conventional structure of softwood studwork sheathed with plywood is enlivened with the random placement of different-coloured asphalt shingle cladding. It is hoped that the stage will have a life of 30 years.
Not bad for under a grand.
