27 November 2019

2019 Architectural MArch graduate Jerome Ng has won this year’s Architectural Drawing Prize in the Hybrid Category.

'Humanise' large-scale refurbished mass of an asian city, by Jerome Ng

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 will receive his prize alongside fellow competition winners at the 12th edition of WAF in Amsterdam this December.

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