HIGHLY COMMENDED - Joseph Shepherd - Victoria University - WellingtonCitation
Joseph Shepherd, 23, won a Highly Commended Award for his proposed accommodation for scientists at the Taputeranga Marine Reserve, a site he chose because he wanted to illustrate how the environment changes a building over time. JURORS’ COMMENTS

In Joseph’s drawings a sense of the past is already implicit. This painterly quality is both melancholic and alluring.« BACK TO FINALISTS
