STUDENTS from the University of Portsmouth have been highly commended by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for their design proposal to make an area of London a friendlier place.

The students, studying for a Masters in Sustainable Architecture (MASA), entered the Vauxhall - The Missing Link Design Competition.

It’s part of a new organisation created to tackle some of the area’s long-standing problems and build a new business quarter.

Dr Sura Al-Maiyah, a senior lecturer, said: ‘We are delighted that our students have achieved this award which was submitted in addition to their academic studies.

‘In our view this competition has provided the students with an opportunity to apply the knowledge gained in the theoretical and practice discourse from the MASA programme to a live project.’
