As part of their award, the winners of the Westminster International Design Competition 2014/15, run in association with the National Association of Students of Architecture (NASA) India, were invited to London as guests of the University of Westminster.

Dinesh Jeyachandran, Mathew Jose, Manoj KumarSundaram and Navnit Sourirajan enjoyed guided tours of Westminster’s Marylebone campus. The students were able to get a real taste of London’s architecture, visiting the Kings Cross Regeneration area as well as the Olympic Park and the Athletes’ Village in Stratford.

Speaking for his team, Dinesh Jeyachandran commented on the experience, saying: “We were very happy and glad that we had entered the competition. We were very excited and very interested in the competition brief as we could relate to it, in view of our city Chennai in India.”

The theme of the Westminster International Design Competition 2014/15 was ‘Transforming the Bus Experience’.

The University of Westminster is committed to providing an international platform for the National Association of Students of Architecture which is a strong body of over 230 architecture colleges in the SAARC region.

As part of this commitment, the winning entries are exhibited at the University’s annual architecture summer exhibition at the Marylebone Campus in London.

The University of Westminster International Design Competition 2015-16 launched on 24 June. This year’s competition brief encourages students to make a positive difference to their local communities for global recognition.
