Young architects from the Hull School of Architecture will graduate next week with a string of prizes including two awarded by industry.
Greek student George Kontaroudis (20) won £1,000 from the Eric Lyons Memorial Fund housing competition earlier this year for his sustainable housing designs, part of the regeneration of the River Hull Corridor, which was “an amazingly inventive, richly presented architectural collage,” according to the judges.
Since then he has been nominated for the RIBA bronze medal and has now been awarded the dean’s prize for top school student which he will receive at the graduation ceremony on Thursday 26th July.
The recognition George has achieved will be a boost to his ambitions - he hopes to begin his career as an architect in Athens after graduating.
Other graduates to be presented with prizes at the ceremony are Museum and Exhibition Design graduates Alex King (23) from Malvern who wins the prize for best performance in design and David Brumby (22), from Brough, for the most improved student on the degree course.
The ceremony is to take place at the Hull City Hall on Thursday 26th July at 11:30am.
