LSI drawing prize awarded to student’s restaurant idea

LSI Architects Partner Rupert Kitchen attended the NUA Architecture awards to present a Drawing Prize to graduating student Arpan Sunuwar. Arpan’s project, titled Heston Blumenthal’s Belfast Restaurant Laboratory, was inspired by the chef’s innovative and explorative approach to food which Arpan applied in his concept and design of a new building. Arpan’s technical drawings and understated computer visualisations conveyed the experience of his proposal to the viewer. Rupert explained: “All drawings of architecture are fiction and while the idea remains a drawing, it is just that, an idea, and a successful drawing is one that best describes the idea, and for this Arpan’s work stood out.” After visiting the degree show, Rupert was impressed with what he described as the “vibrancy and ambition of the work on display.”
