Winners 2017 Mecanoo B.15 Modelmaking Awards announced
The winners of the 2017 Mecanoo B.15 Modelmaking Awards were announced late afternoon on Friday June 9 in Manchester after a very tough judging session.
The judges were impressed by the high standard of work across the board. The awards consider not just single pieces of work, but each individual’s attitude and approach to using physical models as a means to advance the comprehension of their design to themselves and to others.
Judging was carried out by Mecanoo representatives Laurens Kistemaker, Oliver Boaler and Paul Thornber; MSA lecturers Dr. Ray Lucas and Amy Hanley; and B.15 Staff Jim Backhouse, Scott Miller and Phillipa Seagrave.

James Donegan (MArch 1st Prize – Continuity in Architecture)
