KPF announce competition winner

KPF Architects and has announced Cambridge student Rebecca Roberts as the winner of its annual travel scholarships contest

Roberts scooped the £1000 first prize for her convertible new-build based around the Olympics.

The design featured a dining hall for the Olympic athletes, which would be converted into a school for the new and existing communities.

The competition, held in conjunction with The Architecture Foundation, invited students to submit designs which had a strong emphasis on the public realm.

The jury, which included last year’s winner Alex Bank, were impressed by the ‘rigour and detail of the proposal, and the thoroughness with which the concept was explored’. Roberts said she would use the money to travel to India.

Runner-up was Nottingham University student Hajinder Singh, who received £750 for his proposal, which showed a ‘strong interest in high-density master planning and kinetic structures.’ Singh intends to use the bursary to travel to China.
