Newham children who made a Lego heart-shaped house have won a competition to design the house of the future.
The team six members, from Fight for Peace youth club, were each awarded £25 worth of vouchers and the club was given an Apple iMac computer.
Seven teams took part and were all given a pack of Lego. The models had to be within a 32 x 32 stud Lego base plate and have no more than three stories.
London architects HTA Design, in collaboration with Seerbridge, ran the contest, with judges led by Ben Derbyshire, president of the Royal Institute of British Architects as part of their Beyond Boundaries initiative.
Mr Derbyshire said: “The winning team ‘Fight for Peace’ stood out for their fantastic teamwork, with a super creative designer, great research and project manager and a very diligent builder!”
