Samaneh Moafi’s winning entry explores the camp style architecture of refugees and nomads. Lucy Warnock’s successful proposal, ‘Architectural Espionage and the Panopticon’ looks at urban surveillance, while winner David Neustein’s ‘Self-Obliterating Architecture’ featured an image of the Sydney Opera House being erased. An appropriate reference, as all three entries were showcased at a Design Symposium at the Opera House as part of its 40th anniversary festivities.
