Pupils beat 200 schools to win eco-competition
CHILDREN from a Newham school have beaten 200 other entries to win an eco-competition to design sustainable housing.
The students from Brampton Manor were presented with Architecture in Schools: Secondary Awards at a ceremony last week (Dec 6).
Their winning design consisted of housing for 40 people, imagining using a site next to their school. For inspiration they had visited the Bishopsgate and Broadgate Tower in the City following a workshop.
The group won the teamwork award in which judges said they showed “fantastic empathy, patience, ability to listen to each other and build on each others’ ideas together.”
Every year 1,000 pupils get out of the classroom for a behind the scenes exploration of architecture, guided by a professional architect to help them produce their own responses to a design brief.
