The Total Winner of the 2022 Architecture Drawing Prize was introduced these days by the Environment Architecture Competition and Prize co-curators Make Architects and Sir John Soane’s Museum.

The winner is a hybrid drawing entitled “Fitzroy Food stuff Institute” by Samuel Wen and Michael Ren, combining different rendering procedures.

The winners describe their joint entry as a task about a dumpling institute that deviates from a standard orientalist mindset towards Chinese culture, when also inspecting strategies of globalization and automation.

Samuel Wen, a Bachelor of Style and Grasp of Architecture graduate from the College of Melbourne as very well as a college student architect at Cox Architecture says:

“We feel honoured and outside of grateful that our function has been given these recognition. Getting capable to convey these tips and a captivating narrative as a result of drawing experienced been the aim from the beginning. This challenge meant a large amount to us because the broader intention of the drawing was to use architecture to challenge classic oriental stereotypes about our Chinese heritage.”

On their collaborative approach, Michael Ren, a designer/educator and at this time a Grasp of Architecture college student at UC Berkeley CED provides:

“Collaboration underneath a distant academic setting proved to be a obstacle. Having said that, we were ready to perform by way of this project by figuring out specific strengths and weaknesses. For illustration, Samuel has normally been passionate about hand-drawn illustrations whereas I have an aptitude for digital renderings. Incorporating both approaches of illustration admit a write-up-digital period in architectural visualisation.”

The Architecture Drawing Prize is an once-a-year event getting entries in 3 categories: hand-drawn, hybrid and electronic. Every single yr there are 3 group winners from which the judges pick out the total winner. “Fitzroy Foods Institute” was picked as the Hybrid Class winner as an case in point of a remarkably experienced, wealthy composite drawing making use of unique media and consisting of a plan, two sections, two elevations, four sights, six diagrams, 1 element and two simply call-outs. These are imaginatively organized in a major-down see of a usually Chinese roundtable eating experience.

Ken Shuttleworth, founder of Make Architects and Prize choose, commented on the jury’s conclusion to select Samuel Wen’s and Michael Ren’s entry as the all round winner of The Architecture Drawing Prize:

“Fitzroy Food Institute stands out for its perfectly-deemed and refined use of colour. It’s a incredibly accessible drawing searching about a shared food at a desk but it is total of architectural interest showcasing not only a prepare, but sections and elevations as perfectly as depth. A conceptually initial and genuinely pleasant entry.”

The Architecture Drawing Prize Exhibition at Sir John Soane’s Museum opens to the public in February (8 February – 7 May 2023) 

Sir John Soane’s Museum is web hosting a dedicated exhibition of The Architecture Drawing Prize.

This yr, The Architecture Drawing Prize exhibition demonstrates an increased interest in social and environmental matters as very well as a belief in using architectural drawing to freely take a look at ideas and speculate imaginatively. The vary of methods to drawing consists of almost everything from the representational and sublime to the hugely abstract to plays on common draughtsmanship.

The curatorial team from Sir John Soane’s Museum jointly with Make Architects have also produced a virtual retrospective of The Architecture Drawing Prize that will be screened at the Museum’s Foyle Space.

The 2022 version of the Prize and the exhibition at Sir John Soane’s Museum has been realized with the support of the Italian brand Iris Ceramica Team: one particular of the entire world leaders in the generation of large-end ceramic surfaces.
