Bartlett Graduate Wins World Architecture Festival Prize
27 November 2019
2019 Architectural MArch graduate Jerome Ng has won this year’s Architectural Drawing Prize in the Hybrid Category.
The Architecture Drawing Prize is curated by Make Architects, Sir John Soane’s Museum and the World Architecture Festival (WAF). This year, 534 projects in 33 categories were shortlisted and former Architecture MArch student, Jerome Ng, is the overall winner in the Hybrid Category.
Jerome’s drawing ‘Metabolist of a Dementia Nation’ shows an alternative vision for Singapore’s Golden Mile Complex, a landmark residential block and important icon of 1970s Metabolism facing potential demolition. In this vision the building is saved, preserving Singapore’s threatened urban infrastructure, allowing new and existing residents to forge new memories, whilst giving space for the past to breathe.

Jerome was also the overall winner in the Architectural Drawing Prize’s inaugural year, for his project ‘Momento Mori: A Peckham Hospice Care Home’.
