The RIBA, together with Atkins, has awarded its RIBA President’s Medals to students who excel in the study of architecture
Nicholas Szczepaniak, from the University of Westminster, won the Silver Medal for the best Part 2 design project with ‘A Defensive Architecture’ and Wen Ying Teh from the Architectural Association won the Bronze Medal for the best Part 1 design project with ‘An Augmented Ecology of Wildlife and Industry’.
Rebecca Gregory from the University of Westminster won the Dissertation Medal for her work ‘The Art of Skew Bridges: The Technique and its History Explored’.
Ruth Reed, president of the RIBA, said: ‘The annual celebration of the President’s Medals reward the outstanding young talent in schools of architecture in the UK and across the world, and this year is certainly no exception.’
An exhibition of the award-winning work is open to the public at the RIBA headquarters on Portland Place, London, until the end of January 2010.
