RIBA East Student Award 2016/17

RIBA17: Isaac Read, Nicholas Tye

BA (Hons) Architecture student Isaac Read, was awarded the RIBA East Student Award 2017 for his project ‘What defines ‘a divide’ – a physical wall or an intangible barrier?’.

Hilary Carlisle, Dean of Design & Architecture, NUA commented on Isaac’s project “Isaac’s proposal challenges our idea of the wall. He deconstructs the values we place on a simple architectural form and, by subverting its programme, the ‘Life Line’ demonstrates how architecture can be used to question our contemporary social and political constructs.”

The Royal Institute of British Architects annual East Awards celebrates and rewards outstanding architectural students in the East of the Region. Pictured is the Chair of RIBA East, Nicholas Tye presenting Isaac with the award.
