Students from Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture have enjoyed considerable success in two international competitions.

Master of Architecture students Terry Feng, Kim Lee and Bingzhi Li won second prize in the AIV-Schinkel-Preis 2024 international competition, set in Berlin and organised by the Berlin-Brandenburg Association of Architects and Engineers.

The international architectural competition was titled The Day After Tomorrow. Students were able to freely chose a neighbourhood in Berlin to modify, either an empty plot or existing buildings, with the aim to create a ‘liveable city’. Projects responded to the themes of inhabitation, coexistence, and hybridization, addressing the social, cultural, infrastructural, and environmental conditions that opened up new opportunities for the intertwining of social life and natural life in the Berlin neighbourhoods.

The team’s entry transformed an industrial site into a rewilded and residential enclave.

Congratulations also to Eilidh Mckenna, Jodie Horsburgh and Inka Eismar, whose entry also made the final shortlist. 

The work was part of the Close Encounters: Berlin studio, led by Andrea Faed, Andrew Brooks and Jack Green.

There was also success for third year undergraduate students in the UEH 3rd International Design Competition Reimagining Cities Towards Carbon Neutrality

The competition challenged entrants to provide design and planning solutions for the area of North Phuoc Thang, close to Vung Tau City, Vietnam, with a particular focus on sustainability and the reduction of carbon emissions. The students were led by their tutors Dr Ana Miret García and Jack Green.

Xindi Su, Yuxiao Xue and Yao Yu were awarded third prize for their project Urban Stitches, while Yuxuan Wang, Xiaoye Ren & Holly Taylor received the Sponsor’s Favourite Prize for their entry, Waterspace Oases.

The award ceremony was held in Vung Tau City, followed by the presentation and exhibition of the Competition Panels in an International Conference. Yoyo Yu and Yuxuan Wang were able to travel to Vietnam for the event.
