RIBA Isle of Wight – Young Designers Award 2015

Jun 18th, 2015 | Community Projects | 0 Comments

For the third year the Young Designer’s Competition has been organised to engage young people in what is around them, to help them start to formulate opinions on it, and begin to understand what it is that makes good architecture and happy, safe and comfortable places for people to live, work and play in.
As there is a huge array of outdoor activities on the Island, we asked the young designers to design a new mobile shop – they needed to give it a name, write a sentence describing it and then produce a drawing and 3D model of their idea. The response was incredible, with entries increasing from 67 in the first year to nearly 400 this year. There were so many exceptional entries that we also had 28 special mentions in addition to the winners. The winners took part in a creative workshop with Hannah George – who is part of public & community art project, ‘Ecclestone George.’
