Kin Bong Yeung

Kin Bong Yeung, a 2011 alumnus of The Bartlett’s Architecture MArch (ARB/RIBA Part 2) has received a Merit award at the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) Shenzhen Design Awards for Young Talents. His prize-winning work is a speculative design entitled 'Lea Valley Super-Farm: Institute of Failed Fruit and Vegetables'.

The project turns ‘failed’ fruit and vegetables - those which do not meet EU market standards - into sustainable energy for London. An extensive super-farm is also proposed, aiming to make London self-sufficient in fresh produce.

The work was exhibited at the World Architecture Festival in Berlin and is on show until April 2018 as part of the Architecture Drawing Prize exhibition at Sir John Soane’s Museum in London.
