Congratulations to QUB BSc graduates Jonathan, Matthew, and Brett. All students are currently working at top practices in London; including Fosters, and were awarded and honourable mention in the international matterbetter competition. Participants were asked to redefine a contemporary lighthouse typology and take into consideration advances in technology, development of sustainable systems and its metaphorical value which has made it one of the most inspiring structures in the world. Lighthouse design should become a tribute to the Costa Concordia Disaster and highlight the vulnerable borders between the elements of Land and Sea, Sky and Ground, Light and Darkness.Both students have stated they will bring the skills, and experiences, gained during their year out back to Queens University in September as the commence the recently re-formatted MArch (Part 2). Staff and external tutors are looking forward to working with them.
