PLASCON’S TENTH PRISM AWARDS TO CHAMPION GREEN DESIGN Plascon’s prestigious architecture and design competition enters its tenth year of championing local design with a challenge to create a space inspired by nature’s cycle of renewal and regeneration. Winners will be selected by some of South Africa’s most influential design experts in three categories including public buildings, residential and commercial spaces. The annually run awards provides the best of South Africa’s architecture and design students with an opportunity to have their work seen by industry leaders and acts as an invaluable springboard for their careers. Entrants are challenged to submit a plan of a space created using natural biodegradable materials and that takes the evolved precision of nature as inspiration. Natural forms such as beehives, nests and burrows are suggested as influences, with judges looking for entries that achieve excellence in both appearance and function.
