Sketch A Facade Competition

18/04/2012 by architectural competitions

Kingspan Benchmark has joined forces with the AJ on a ‘Sketch a Facade’ Competition, to get Chartered Architects and Student Architects sketching.

The AJ invited Alan Dunlop to talk about sketching on 21st March at Kohn Pedersen Fox’s new gallery on Langley Street, London. Alan’s lecture was truly inspiring, showcasing Paul Rudolph, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Kahn, Ed Ruscha and many more. All fantastic pieces of work with their own interpretation, whether it was showing the whole landscape, a focused area, in black and white or full colour. In case you missed it, please feel free to download the presentation here.

Now it’s your turn! It can be any facade, building – iconic, industrial, shed, tower. We want to see what buildings inspire you – whether it’s the shape of the building, the textures, the landscape, you show us.

To enter the competition, please email your sketches and drawings to, titling your email ‘Benchmark sketch’, or post them to: Stephanie Geisler, Emap, Greater London House, Hampstead Road, London, NW1 7EJ.

The deadline for entries is Friday 18th May.

The best will feature in the AJ and the winning sketch will receive £500.
The best sketch by a student will win an annual subscription to both the AJ and the Architectural Review.

We wish you the best of luck!

    One more important component is that if you are a senior citizen, travel insurance for pensioners is something that is important to really take into account. The more mature you are, a lot more at risk you will be for allowing something negative happen to you while in most foreign countries. If you are certainly not covered by many comprehensive insurance cover, you could have quite a few serious troubles. Thanks for discussing your hints on this web site.

    We currently have 3. An Australian Shepherd named Biscuit. My son named him after the Biscuit books that he had just lenared to read by himself. We also have two cats, a tortie that I named Ming Li because she just looked like a princess and Ming Li seemed to be a good name for a princess And last but not least we have our grey tabby that my son named Jedi for the obvious reasons. I do believe the force may be with him as well. He certainly uses his jedi mind tricks to wrap us around his little paw!That’s our menagerie of mayhem’s names, none so creative as Grumplestiltskin but we like them all the same
