The shortlist for the 2019 A&DS and RIAS Scottish Student Awards for Architecture was announced at the Annual Andy MacMillan Memorial Lecture at the Lighthouse, Glasgow on Thursday 19th September.
This was the first year that the student awards were open to all students at Scotland’s architecture schools. We were delighted to receive over 40 entries. The judges found shortlisting very difficult due to the high standard of the projects submitted.
This is a phenomenal piece of work, sweetly integrated into its environment. A proposal for a museum of city spaces, it is all about the spaces showing a very subtle approach to the light. Simply beautiful.Judges’ Comments
The Clyde Laboratory is a stunning project. It displays a confidence in doing something simple. The drawings are beautiful and work well with the materiality samples and the plan.Judges’ Comments
The scheme is to be applauded. It looks at repairing parts of the city, and knitting spaces together, achieving this by using existing architecture with carefully considered architectural interventions. This proposal is presented through some amazing drawings, showing a clear consideration and response to the complexity of the issues that the city is trying to tackle.Judges’ Comments
The scheme looks at adapting, retention and reuse rather than a new building. It considers local and natural materials, reflecting the climate and environment of India, and appears to have a sustainability agenda embedded throughout the proposals.Judges’ Comments
A stunning and cohesive collection of drawings. It presents beautiful patterns, with great choices of perspective. The interplay between the rendered visuals and the simple yet beautiful CAD drawings is particularly clever, with the overall composition showing great confidence and refinement.Judges’ Comments
