Grand Prize: The Emperor's Castle, Thomas Hillier, UK
Three Grand Prize winners and thirteen Special Mentions have been announced in d3's Unbuilt Visions 2012 competition. The program promotes critical debate about architecture and design by acknowledging excellence in unbuilt projects.
I'm very glad to see Thomas Hillier's work recognized. He submitted this piece for another competition a few years ago and was duly recognized, even as it went a bit beyond the competition's established criteria. A beautiful piece!
