Scale + Ambition: AJ Small Projects 2013
Scale + Ambition: AJ Small Projects Award 2013
Exhibition: Wednesday 7 August to Sunday 22 September 2013
For the second year running the Architecture Centre is pleased to welcome back the Architects' Journal Small Projects exhibition. This annual competition, supported again this year by Marley Eternit, celebrates design ingenuity and excellence delivered within a budget of less than £250,000.
The 24 shortlisted entrants pitched their projects at a live crit in front of a jury including architect Alison Brooks and AJ editor Christine Murray. The winning entry was chosen to be Box House by Laura Dewes Mathews. Known locally as the 'gingerbread house', it is an infill dwelling built for the architect and her family, and was selected for its 'clever use of volumes and daylight'.
If you are inspired by the projects you see in this exhibition and have dreams of renovating or building your own home, or planning an extension, why not book a slot to speak to a local architect in one of our monthly Ask an Architect surgeries. More information available here.
We will be hosting a related event - Small Projects, Big Green Ambitions on Thursday 12 September 2013, chaired by AJ Sustainability editor Hattie Hartman.
You can also find out about the Architecture Centre's other activities including its role as an Arts Award Supporter. We have resources and activities for young people to take away, and following the very enjoyable I Love Cardboard workshop, there are also some activities in the gallery to help you make your own Small Project.
