3rd Living Steel Competition: And the Winner Is...
Peter Stutchbury Architecture, for the design of "creating energy efficient, single-family, detached housing that minimises climate change emissions and can withstand temperature extremes, yet is affordable to build and to buy," to be built in Cherepovets, Russia. The jury, led by Glenn Murcott, said "Peter Stutchbury Architecture's scheme represents the kind of thinking the Living Steel competition is meant to inspire, offering a more considered, thoughtful and larger trajectory to the project brief requirements. It is the most memorable of all of the schemes offered in the competition, and the Jury made a 5 to 1 decision to select it as the winning scheme for the 3rd International Architecture Competition for Sustainable Housing. It is radically different and has a very imaginative understanding of the landscape theme, and the suggested neighbourhood plan provides an incredible play field for children and park-like setting for the community."
"The Jury was hard pressed to select only one winner since so many high-quality schemes were presented. Because of this, it was decided to give Honourable Mention to two additional teams, RVTR of Toronto, Canada, led by Kathy Velikov and Paul Raff, and Bligh Voller Nield (BVN) Architecture, with team members Chris Clarke and Joel Kelder. Each of the Honourable Mention teams receives a â‚¬3,000 prize."
More detail about the house as it becomes available; there is not really much of an explanation on the site yet. ::Living Steel Competition
