Year 10 Boys Win Architecture Competition

A team of aspiring architects and engineers from Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich have won a competition to design and produce a pavilion as part of Clerkenwell Design Week

The boys attended a two-day workshop at Grimshaw Architects, an international architecture company known for designing projects such as London Bridge Station, the Eden Project and Heathrow Terminal 1.


The boys worked closely with architects and engineers to learn about the principles of construction and design, before presenting their final concept to a panel of judges

The boys fended off some fierce competition and were selected as winners, and in May the boys will have the opportunity to construct a full scale model of their pavilion which will be on display in St James’ Churchyard in Clerkenwell.

Congratulations to Miqdaam, Muhammad, William, Jathursan and Devin (pictured above) on such a fantastic achievement and we greatly look forward to viewing the finished pavilion in May.

Below: Judges listen to our students' presentation about their concept for a sustainable pavillion.


"It has made me interested to explore careers in engineering.”

“It was a really unique experience that opened my mind to the world of architecture and engineering," said Muhammad, Year 10. "We enjoyed creating an idea, developing it with feedback from the professionals and then explain the sustainability of the project. It has made me interested to explore careers in engineering further.”

William, Year 10, agreed: “I was able to use Maths, Science and DT skills to deliver this project. It was really exciting to use such a wide range of subjects to be able to create an idea for our pavilion. I cannot wait to be involved in making the full model and putting it on display.”

Catherine Howe from Grimshaw Architects said: “The boys did really well, they were enthusiastic throughout, thought critically about the design challenges that we set them and were a credit to your school. And yes as our winning team they worked hard and presented their ideas well, the judging panel were impressed with their strong sustainable concept and we enjoyed having them on board for the weekend."

Thank you to organisers (pictured below) for making this opportunity possible.
