Mario Alcantara Monteiro - Degree Prize – for overall excellence for a graduating Part 1 student
Mario’s imagined pavilion on Madeira Drive, Brighton would showcase the maintenance of Volk’s Railway, the world’s oldest functioning electric railway. Mario envisaged the pavilion as a public space and transport hub to bring life to the area. The RIBA judges unanimously selected Mario’s drawing, praising its ‘strong bold graphic style’.
