The Waste House Award for Circular Design 2021.

The Waste House Award for Circular Design 2021 is open to any graduating students across any of our courses who have a project that addresses the Climate and Ecological Emergency head-on.

The mission of the prize is to raise awareness amongst students and staff of the importance of and to add value to the understanding and challenges presented to design industries by the ambitions of a truly ‘circular economy’. This prize is open to any student graduating within the School of Architecture & Design whose work considers the Circular Economy as all or part of the project. For inclusion pieces of work must be nominated by tutors from across the school.

The criteria for judging the prize is that the design proposition from initial inception attempts to fold in issues of the Circular Economy including “designing for re-manufacture”.

A panel consisting of the prize founder, Duncan Baker-Brown, plus three colleagues will judge each nominated piece of work and determine a prize winner through deliberation as well as the runners up and any projects to be highly commended.

The deadline for nominations is 14th June and there is a prize of £250.
