Manchester School of Architecture student Romulus Sim has picked up the Architecture Award at the Crous Student Design Awards. The brief for this year's competiton, the 21st competiton in the series open to both architecture and engineering students, called for a design for a vertical community called 'Community One.' The proposed scheme would have to a range of programmes from places to live, work and use lesiure facilities - reducing transportation and associated pollution. The RIBA Student Architecture News digest quotes David Bonnett of David Bonnett Associates as saying Romulus's proposal was "terrific and very elegant, and was an idea that had not been seen before."
