20 under 40 results 2011

The 20under40 competition has been completed for another year – and here’s a post to wrap up the results. Every year (or two) we run a competition to see how a collection of brilliant young architectural minds can work, in the challenging atmosphere of a 24 hour design competition. We start at 6pm one night, and finish at 6pm the following night. The exhausted remainder finish off with a party of drinks and nibbles and watch jealously at someone else’s work who had a far, far better idea. By the end of the weekend, prizes have been awarded and its all over, Rover. This year, the scenario was the alternative universe involving the rebirth of Wainuiomata.

A huge thanks to our Judges:
Margaret Willard
Trevor Mallard
Lucie Derosiers
Simon Twose

We think they made a quite good mix.

Prizes went to:
Collective Verb (Duncan Harding et al) : who swept the board really: they took out the Architectural Centre Prize, the Beca Prize, and the Gordon Harris Modelling Prize. Well done !

Team MG (Monique van Alphen Fye et al) : Resene Colour Prize, Gordon Harris Drawing Prize

Naga (Jestin Nordin) : McCashin Beer Prize

Gouda Life (Stuart Taylor et al) : there could be only one winner of the Cheesy Prize

Thanks to organising committee: Kate Linzey (who did most of the work, we hear), Matthew Lander, Dennis Chippendale and especially Rebecca McLaughlan who got roped in at the last minute!

And of course a massive great thank you to all our Sponsors, including:
Gordon Harris
McCashin’s Brewery
and especially ProductSpec (aka Jon) who helped run the event. Cheers All !

    Can we get some idea of what the theme was? What were the entries? I find this lacking some vital information. I’ve been really surprised by how poorly advertised and discussed this years comp was.

  2. And let’s see some pictures please.


  3. The Collective Verb entry can be view on youtube if anyone is interested.

  4. Yes, I’d love to see some pictures of this amazing winning entry… and also this curious house of cheese that won the Cheesy prize. I hear rumours of Camembert and Emmerdale.
