Kiwi architectural graduate Hannah Broatch of the Unitec School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture has won one of 8 prizes at the 2017 Hunter Douglas Archiprix Awards.

Once every two years architecture schools around the world are invited to submit their single, finest graduation project to the Archiprix International competition and exhibition.

From the 385 graduation projects designed by 469 young architects, landscape architects and urban designers that were submitted for the Archiprix International Ahmedabad 2017, an international jury nominated 23 projects for the 2017 Hunter Douglas Archiprix Awards.

Out of these nominees, 8 winners were selected and announced at the award ceremony on Friday 10 February on the campus of CEPT University, Ahmedabad, India.

Hannah Broatch won one of the prizes for her graduate project Housing for Construction Workers in Ahmedabad: Jugaad urbanism to empower a labour colony. The jury commented, “The project is an excellent example of the social relevance of architecture.”

Hannah also won Highly Commended for this project in 2015 back home at the NZIA Cadimage Group Student Design Awards.

Hannah is currently in India building pilots of the housing system for construction workers.
