NUST ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS WIN DES BAKER AWARD 2016

NUST Architecture Honours students Ndeshipanda Iita and Elao Martin recently won the prestigious annual Murray & Roberts Des Baker architecture students design competition in South Africa. Their project entitled ‘Architecture of Crisis – Windhoek Communal Borehole Wells” was awarded the first prize amongst 16 entries from mainly South African schools of architecture by a high-ranking international jury.

2nd Year Students engage with Architectural Masterpiece

The current design project has been possible through the generosity of Peter and Konstanze Strack. Several visits were made by the students to their house in Windhoek that Peter designed and constructed in 1972. The detailed history of design, construction and subsequent modifications, gave the students an opportunity to appreciate how a successful example of domestic architecture evolves over time.
