The Carl and Emily Fuchs Foundation has, over the past five years, annually awarded prestige prizes of R50 000 each to three honours students in Architecture in South Africa. This year Wynand Viljoen from the Department of Architecture scooped one of these prizes. The students are judged on the previous three years’ studies, a portfolio and a presentation to the panel of judges. They are also given a project to complete over a period of 24 hours.

Martie Bitzer, the head of the department, says, “We are very pleased that we can offer proof of a well structured course in this way, as well as an excellent student!”
