At the end of the tour, the winner of the annual Serpentine Pavilion Design competition was announced. The judges were very impressed with all the designs submitted and exclaimed how it was a very close call.
Miguel Gil was proclaimed the winner and awarded with a £100 Amazon voucher and a paid 2-week internship at an architectural firm.
Miguel’s design won with its flexibility in functional space, the judges made note of how it could be transformed into a space for an art exhibition, music venue or café. They were also very impressed with his modular design, allowing the structure to be dismantled and re-built easily, meeting the needs of the Serpentine Pavilion design brief.

Because it was so close, the judges could not award a runner up, so they gave the rest a £50 voucher for their efforts. In the end, everyone was a winner!
We are so grateful to Tina and the professional panel of architects and engineers from the M.J Lonsdale group for their support in sponsoring the competition and Bloomberg for hosting us in this spectacular visit. This has inspired our students greatly to consider how sustainability can be better achieved in our living and working spaces!
