Christ's Students Win Architecture Prize

Christ's School students are celebrating after winning the Scale Rule Future of Design competition. Arthur Leech and Dominic Weymouth, both in Year 11, won the competition to design a pavillion for St James Church Garden in Clerkenwell.

The competition followed two days of workshops with professionals covering subjects such as architecture, engineering, sustainability, construction and drawing. Students worked in teams of 2-6 people to design their pavillion. Following a visit to site the students managed their design through from concept sketches to 3D scale models accompanied by plans, sections and construction details explaining how to build it.

The two days culminated in each team presenting their work to a jury of architects and engineers from academia and industry. The judges felt that there were some very imaginative ideas and ingenious designs but Arthur and Dominic's work stood out for its appealing design, deceptive simplicity and well thought out technical design. 

Arthur and Dominic's pavilion will be built, with help from architects Grimshaws and AKT11, and will be based in St James' Church, Clerkenwell for six months from May 2016.
