‘Rebooted’ 3DReid Student Prize returns

ARCHITECTURE practice 3DReid has relaunched its Student Prize after skipping a year in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The firm revealed it has reassessed the prize, which has been running for 15 years, and made some amendments to reflect the changes to society and the industry in recent times.

The prize offers students and architecture schools a platform to showcase their work, engage with the industry and improve job prospects.

Tutors are invited to nominate one Part II student (or group) whose work on a project best responds to the judging criteria, taking into account aspects such as impact, innovation and communication.

This year, students are being asked to remove their names and universities from submissions to ensure ‘unconsicous bias’ plays no part in the shortlisting process. 3DReid also plans to ensure the final judging panel is diverse to better represent varied views and voices.

Previous winners have included young architects from some of the top UK architectural schools, including Findlay McFarlane from ESALA in 2019.

Nominations must be submitted by June 25. A five-strong shortlist will then be presented to a panel of judges.
