LSA STUDENTS WIN NATIONAL DESIGN COMPETITION
Three LSA First Year students – Katrina Duncan, Lisa McDanell and Robin Chatwin – have won an ideas contest to reinvent underused industrial land in Thamesmead, south-east London. The team was selected for the £1,000 top prize following a public judging session chaired by The Guardian’s architecture critic, Oliver Wainwright. The London Works competition, backed by Peabody Housing Association, was open to all students and 2017 graduates of architecture and related disciplines. The contest sought ambitious visions to transform the Nathan Way industrial estate into a ‘livelier urban quarter’.
