Today we have presented the winner of the Offecct Prize 2012:
Marios Aphram with the project “Dendron Research Station.”
Marios received the winner of the prestigious Offecct Prize 2012 in the form of a grant of SEK 10 000 and a diploma.
“The Dendron Research Station communicates a spectacular spatial experience generated with great economy of means. Through a single design principle – combining choice of site and a unitary structural system – it creates a persuasive variety of spaces in which to house its programme.
It is investigative and innovative and thereby part of a proud tradition and discourse within architecture. It contributes to an increasingly important discussion on sustainability and, further, is extremely well and thoroughly communicated, specifically through its use of drawing.”
Marios Aphram has studied architecture at the University of East London and at the KTH School of Architecture in Stockholm.
The winner of the 2012 Offecct Prize was selected by a jury consisting of: Jannice Johansson, Tengbom, Jury President; Tim Anstey, KTH School of Architecture; Mark Isitt, Architectural Writer; Johan Larsson, Koncept; and Lina Svensson, Offecct.
The Offecct Prize was established in 2010 in order to reward a young promising architectural student at KTH School of Architecture in Stockholm, Sweden, in Offecct’s ambition to promote the next generation of architects.
All the nominated projects are on display in Offecct’s showroom at Torsgatan 13, Stockholm, between June 12 and August 31 (closed between July 4 and August 5).
