MacEwen Commendation for NGD London 2017!

Education, Next Generation Design, Projects

RIBAJ Front Page 26.01.18

Our delightful roll for the MacEwen Awards 2018 has come to a halt with an exciting commendation for the Next Generation Design Pavilion. The article ‘Ess-ence of youth’ thoughtfully written eloquently sums up why we do these projects and our aspirations of what it may bring to the industry in the future.

 Professionals pitch in to demystify their work, encourage design ideas and teach practicalities, so helping to make architecture and engineering seem possible university and career options for young people who might not normally even consider them.

Scale Rule research paper


The shortlist for the RIBA research prize 2017 has just been announced. Sadly our entry didn’t make the shortlist (booooo). The good news though is that the Abstract gets included in the book of abstracts which you can download here and check it out for yourselves (page 41).

Loads of really good projects so well done to all who have been shortlisted and who knows, maybe we’ll be back next year…
