Corus Undergraduate Architects Award
Brief 2006

The Eighteenth Corus Undergraduate Architects Award is supportedby the Steel Construction Institute (SCI), the British Constructional Steelwork Association Limited (BCSA) and the Architect’s Journal. The competition is approved by the RIBA.
Matthew Teague, consultant architect at the Corus Construction Centre with the valuable helpof Olga Popovic Larsen, Yasmin Shariff, Christopher Nash, Ruth Slavid, Terry Raggett andBryan Avery, has prepared the brief. We are grateful to Dr David Bonnett of David BonnettArchitects for his help and advice on inclusive design issues. The competition is managedwith the assistance of the RIBA competitions office.
The world is in turmoil. Repeated studies over the past twenty years have highlighted thedangers of global warming, ozone depletion and the plundering of natural resources. Variousprotocols and treaties have been signed yet still there is no consensus on how to combat thevarious threats that altered weather patterns may pose, or even if a long-term threat exists atall.
What is clear however is that knowledge equals power. Empowered people campaigning andlobbying for change can influence governments and corporations to alter their stance.
One of the most direct incentives for change is clear evidence of something affecting yourown existence. The connection between (for instance) smoking and health is well understoodand documented, as are the effects of being exposed to traffic fumes or the long-termproblems associated with dioxins and other contaminants. What is difficult to establish is the connection between a particular locale and the presence ofairborne or waterborne pollution and its source; or a response to living on a potential floodplain, and the means to do something about it.
In the book The Emergence of Chaos, Edward Lorenz explains in 1963 his thesis, which isoften referred to as ‘the butterfly effect’. In short the hypothesis asserts that a butterfly beatingits wings somewhere in the world could theoretically cause a hurricane elsewhere. Thisassertion underlines the interconnectivity of events despite the apparent chaotic relationshipbetween them, whereby a small action can have a large and completely unforeseenconsequence. How can architecture help to explain some of the challenges facing the world on a number ofconnected fronts related to Social, Economic, Environmental, and Resources issues? Howcan architecture help to stimulate grass-roots movements for change, based on the ‘GlobalProblem, Local Action’ model? ‘How can we use architecture to communicate global environmental issues to our

In the context of architecture your entry will address one or a number of environmental issues.
The building will be a focal point for a community – you are free to choose which communityand where the building will be sited.
The building itself must be an exemplar for sustainable design using steel, a material that canbe recycled, potentially an infinite number of times. Your proposals can incorporate as manyother sustainable technologies as appropriate.
The accommodation is not a compulsory part of the brief, much will depend on the size andtype of community your building serves. It may contain meeting spaces, means of measuring,collecting and disseminating environmental data; it may serve as a hub for sustainable waysof living, or as a catalyst for change in an area affected by particular environmental problems.
