Congratulations to Shiyao (Annie) Tong!
Team Architects is proud to see previous 2018 Team Architects Scholarship Supreme Award winner Annie Tong taking out a highly commended award at the NZIA Resene Student Design Awards held in Auckland last month. All 12 finalists set up exhibitions of their comprehensive final-year thesis projects and then presented them to an esteemed jury led by NZIA President Tim Melville. The judges commenting that the quality of the work and the “passion for your topic and chosen issue was inspiring.” Emily Newmarch from VUW’s School of Architecture took out the top prize and Icao Tiseli joined Annie in receiving the highly commended awards.
But Annie’s achievements for the year don’t stop there. She took out the top student award at this year’s Interior Awards for her project, Museum of Lost Memories. Annie describes the project as an “exploration on the practice, political and cultural meaning of silence in architecture”. You can read more about Annie’s project here >>>>.
Again a huge congratulations to Annie for her many achievements this year.
