The ‘Thirty for Thirty’ Art Competition, celebrating Buro Four’s 30th Anniversary, came to a triumphant climax in an exhibition held at the National Theatre on 24th September.
Each of the 30 artists eagerly submitted their original pieces; all based on major projects which Buro Four has helped to deliver. This exciting art competition was launched to not only celebrate Buro Four’s 30th Anniversary, but also in support of our ethos towards creativity and our continued support of the Arts over the past 30 years.
Our panel of judges, including: Alex Schady, Head of Fine Art at Central Saint Martins; Megan Piper, Art Curator & Dealer; and Paul Finch, Editorial Director for Architects’ Journal & Architectural Review, awarded a prize of £1000 to the winning artist and provided a number of commendations.
The overall winner was announced as Becky Allen, a recent Royal College of Art graduate for her intricate line-drawings based on The Crown Estate’s 10 New Burlington Street development [above], designed by AHMM.
Commendations went to Gemma Land for her work based on the School of Engineering - University of Liverpool, Guillermo Aguilar-Huerta for Ludwig Erhard Haus in Berlin and Ella Phillips for her work on Buro Four’s home in Naoroji St.
The winner of the People’s Choice Award, as voted on the night of the exhibitions, was Kent based artist Rod McIntosh for his beautiful piece on our project Folkestone Academy [right], designed by Foster + Partners.
