The Engineering Club is delighted to announce the winners of the 2022 Engineering Sketches Student Prize. Somewhat disrupted by both lockdowns and technical difficulties the judging finally took place at the beginning of June and four excellent sketches were selected as worthy of the the £200 prize in each of the four categories.
The Concept Prize is awarded to Yingxuan Chian of the University of Sheffield for 'Structural scheme and construction details for the Guild of Satirists and Humourists (GOSH)’, which the judges felt was a rich agglomeration of technical understanding expressed through accomplished drawing technique and well-chosen viewpoints.
The Detail Prize goes to Celine Tan from the University of Sheffield for the study of 'An inclined glulam tied-arch pedestrian bridge’. The judges described the drawing as ‘bursting with energy….a classic example of somebody who wants to express an understanding of engineering through sketching’.
The ‘Historical’ category winner is Margo Sulek, also of the University of Sheffield for her study of Park Square Bridge in Sheffield. The judges found this diligent and well put together with some well observed details. ’The sketch enhances our understanding of how the bridge works as a structure’.
Finally the Process prize is awarded to Nabjot Singh from Bath University for their Masonry Construction Sequence. Working confidently in 2D their drawing has clarity and logic in its progression and the judges could see technically how the sequence is working’.
No Overall Prize was awarded. Although the winning drawings were all of a high standard, none stood out from the group as achieving an exceptional level of accomplishment. A commended prize was also awarded to Flik Cooper for her 'Construction Sequence of a Bow String Arch Bridge’.
