Third year Bachelor of Architectural Studies (BAS) student Olivia Wong has been awarded a significant prize from the New Zealand Concrete Society. Olivia was selected to represent the School of Architecture and Planning for the prize, and she then had to prepare a submission to be assessed by the President and Council members of the Society.

As well as the $4000 cash prize, Olivia received a student membership to the NZ Concrete Society for the coming year. As part of the prize, she has also secured expenses-paid attendance at the annual Society conference, where she will present her work.

Professor Andrew Barrie says "Olivia's project, produced as part of a study tour through Spain and Portugal, brings material and space together masterfully. It was one of the best projects produced in the School this year, and it's great to see our students' work recognized at this national level."
