Urban Design Award 2015: short-listed our MSc students!!!

Our student have something exceptional, we already knew that, but it is always good to have it reminded!

After the golden medal awarded to our student Ian Brody for the UDG award in 2012 (click here and here to find out more) and the first prize at the International Urban Design Competition UrbanPromo Giovani reported by Alessandra and Jacob less than six months ago (and that you can find here and here), our students reported another great result at the prestigious UDG Award.

This year’s award ceremony of the UDG Award 2015 took place in London in March 2015. In that occasion Siti Anis, Sen Chen and Osman Khalifa, our MSc UD Students in 2013-2014, were shortlisted as finalists for the best Urban Design student work, competing with the best students across the whole UK!

It seems that our students can’t stay away from the podium for too long… To confirm that it is enough to say that not a year ago the same project was awarded by the RTPI West of Scotland with the first prize!

If you are curious to know more about their project, you can find a video presentation of the project, a dedicated webpage.

Here few excerpts from their Urban Design Project:

So, what else to say… great job Siti, Sen and Osman, you didn’t fail to make us even more proud!

Congratulations to our fantastic students!
