WRITTLE University College landscape architecture student Michael Ekers has won the Student Portfolio Award with his project ‘Indulge Me’.
The Landscape Institute is the chartered body for the landscape profession. The awards showcase the exceptional work of the many different types of landscape professionals including landscape designers, managers, planners and researchers.
The LI awards are presented to landscape professionals in recognition of their outstanding work, to encourage excellence and to applaud those working on the most innovative projects.
Michael said: “I’m delighted to have won this award. The portfolio explores how digital, analogue, and hybrid forms of representation can be used to communicate landscape’s intangible qualities – the experience of landscape. Visual representation, however engaging, must also be capable of demonstrating design intent. The balance between suggestion and prescription is explored throughout, with images drawn from undergraduate modules being melded with other visual resources to activate and enhance the narrative”.
Judges said: ‘Indulge Me’ demonstrates a great degree of creativity, both in the topics developed and in the way of Communicating ideas’
Michael is currently a Postgraduate student at WUC studying MA Landscape Architecture.
