Our congratulations to John Wildsmith on being selected as the winner of the annual Burrell Foley Fischer Project Illustration Prize, awarded to the best individual drawing at the University of Westminster’s end-of-year student exhibition, OPEN 2017.
The exhibition includes students’ work from first year to graduation, including architecture drawings, models and fabrications, ranging from the handmade to virtual realities, and from small-scale to full-size. John Burrell, who judged the award, commented, “I spent a long time looking at lots of excellent work on display and the longer I looked the more difficult it became to decide on a winner. I was very impressed by the standard of work and there were many projects that were worthy of a prize but John Wildsmith’s drawings, 'Resurrection from the Rubble: Exploring & renewing the edge condition of Gaza' wins the award."
The exhibition remains open until Sunday 2 July and details can be found on the University’s website https://www.westminster.ac.uk/news-and-events/news/2017/westminster-s-acclaimed-architecture-and-interiors-exhibition-open-2017-to-launch
