News > Loughborough Model Prize

26 June 2018

Aukett Swanke are proud to be the inaugural sponsors for the Loughborough School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering's First Year Prize for model making. Tom Alexander from our London Studios judged the award and was present for the awards ceremony.

This sponsorship marks the beginning of a new relationship with the school as visiting critics, following our design of the Sir Frank Gibb Building which houses the department.

The school has a world class reputation for the research and testing of building systems and products with facilities that are open to the students for study and experimentation.

 

THE PRIZE WINNER: KATEY OVEN

Views of the prize winner Katey Oven's modelling work which progressively explores site characteristics, massing and integration, space and enclosure, and finally scale and composition. We were particularly impressed by Katey's experimentation and progression of her design narrative illustrated in the sequence of models.
