Results of the 2019 Chapman Taylor Employee Design Competition announced

We are delighted to announce the winners of Chapman Taylor's 2019 Design Competition.

Having just celebrated Chapman Taylor’s 60th anniversary, we challenged our employees to look 60 years into the future, to 2079, and the possibility of a human colony on Mars, and to submit design proposals for different aspects of that vision.

The standard of all submissions was extremely high, and the quality of presentation was very good across the board. Choosing the winners was challenging but, following detailed deliberation, our judging panel named the following submissions as its top three:

1st Prize: Hephaestus 149 by John Riley (Manchester studio)

The winning entry, Haphaestus 149 by John Riley from our Manchester studio, creates a human-friendly, flexible and environment-adapted community on Mars – creating diverse work, agricultural and residential quarters within a network of parks and public spaces.

The judges felt that the vision, creativity and layers of detail captured in John's entry were bold, exciting and imaginative.

2nd Prize: 25th Hour by Olesia Kotiyar and Evgeny Zelenov

The runner up, 25th Hour by Olesia Kotiyar and Evgeny Zelenov, imagines a television reality show project to colonise Mars, with a self-supporting shell providing life-sustaining conditions for a vertical city built using Martian materials.

3rd Prize: Project Zima by Antonio Aguilar, Jerome Sripetchvandee, Naipaporn Buppa and Mawee Pornpunyalert (Bangkok studio)

Third place was awarded to Project Zima by Antonio Aguilar, Jerome Sripetchvandee, Naipaporn Buppa and Mawee Pornpunyalert from our Bangkok studio – a radial Martian city masterplan surrounding a mountain core, supported by a pod transport system and underground agriculture.

Congratulations to John and to all the winners!
