Sheppard Robson Jicwood Prize 2020 winners announced

28th August 2020

Sheppard Robson have recently selected the 2020 Jicwood Prize winner and four shortlisted from a longlist of the top scoring BA students at the Liverpool School of Architecture. Now in its fifth year, the Jicwood Prize recognises unique architectural viewpoints with a conscious and imaginative approach to sustainable design, at BA level at the Liverpool and Manchester Schools of Architecture. Sheppard Robson have a long heritage of connections with the Liverpool school, with teachers, reviewers and external examiners amongst the staff, as well as many graduates. The prize was judged this year by Richmal Wigglesworth and Jasmin Eastwood, both graduates of Liverpool.

Daniel Pritchard Clarke was selected at the winner, for his project “Space Between.” This proposal places thirty terraced homes on a disused wedge of land bordering the Leeds-Liverpool canal, with shared communal space at its centre. As part of a wider masterplan, it emphasises the richness of green space and symbiotic development against a history of decline.

Shortlisted entrants include: David Fawcett for “Layers of Living,” Matt Gilham for “Courtyard Film School,” Jaying He for “Guardian of the Hill,” and Minyu Huang for “Ambiguous Border.”
