  • Comment

The winner of the AJ writing prize was announced by AJ editor Christine Murray at a lunch today

The shortlisted entrants for this year’s AJ writing prize, in association with Berman Guedes Stretton, joined members of the jury and sponsor the Lead Sheet Association for a lunch to hear the winning entry announced.

The six shortlisted entrants were chosen from eighty entries by judges Alan Berman, Joseph Rykwert, David Partridge and Christine Murray. 

The winning prize went to South African, J Schutzer Weissmann, who unfortunately could not be present. Gemma Owen of Fosters + Partners took the runner up prize.

The shortlisted entrants Daniel Elsea, Dominic McAndrew, Poppy McNee and Rosella Scalia were all congratulated for their ‘standout pieces’.

Alan Berman of Berman Guedes Stretton commended the award entries, before reading out a selection of his favourite quotes from the essays, which were tasked with answering the question ‘Do architects have a duty to anyone but their client?’. 

Read all the shortlisted entries in this week’s AJ.
