2018 marks the second year of the Spatial Practices Prizes in collaboration with Knight Frank, which are awarded across the programme’s three courses. 

From harnessing the potential of an underused carpark in Croydon to an attempt to decolonise the archive, this year’s shortlist demonstrates Spatial Practices’ wider dedication to the social and political implications of space. Awarded in recognition of outstanding work by a final-year student, one prize will be awarded per course: BA Architecture, M ARCH Architecture/MA Architecture and MA Narrative Environments. The three winners will be announced on 21 June during Show Two: Design. The full shortlist is listed below:

We are really delighted to partner with Knight Frank for the second year as our Programme Sponsor for the Spatial Practices Degree Show. We share a fascination for the forces that shape the city around us, and in how we can produce engaging and generous spaces and places for people to live in.” – Mel Dodd, Programme Director, Spatial Practices
