Over 100 Year 9 and 10 students from 14 schools participated in the Young Designers Light Rail Ideas Competition, held 7 – 8 April 2015. Three talented teams of students from Canberra Grammar School participated.
Although they didn’t receive an award in what turned out to be a very competitive event, students said that the competition was a “great opportunity to obtain valuable design experience and work with architects.”
Each team presented wonderful ideas on the design and integration of light rail. Their calibre of entries was outstanding – congratulations to all students for their enthusiasm and brilliant ideas:
- Dimitri Efstathiadis, Rawson Wade and Jack Westcombe Casey;
- Matt Laduzko, Jon Howles, Tim Cross and Ash Glassock; and
- Joseph Fergusson, David Guinane and Tim Hibbins.
Capital Metro and the Institute of Architects would like to thank the school and budding designers for sharing their ideas for a light rail of the future. Plans are underway for all design entries to be exhibited at public libraries.
