"Statsbygg wishes to encourage innovative and experimental studies of architecture among future generations of architects. The Student Award will be handed out to one or more student projects at the master level for particularly innovative and well executed project work performed in accordance with state guidelines within the field of architecture. In the evaluation, emphasis is placed on clarity in quality and form, in terms of identity, practical usefulness and aesthetic value."
Statsbygg has therefore agreed with BAS for the distribution of such a student award. BAS has decided that this should be done in relation to the diploma projects, and the censors at the exam will nominate three diploma projects that are submitted to a jury in Statsbygg. Now the winner is chosen, and the award will be given out at BAS on Monday 5. December at 1200. Read more.

John Chantler is a musician and organiser living in Stockholm, Sweden. As a musician and composer John's work utilisers electronics and organs working with and against the specific systems inherent in his chosen tools. His most recent LP — Which Way To Leave? — charts an unpredictable, highly dynamic course through distorted washes of massed harmonics and passages of stark alien beauty. This follows Still Light, Outside — an extended suite that combines passages of stark minimalism centred at the bodily invasive extremes of the pipe organ’s register with striking explosions of colour; massed chords shot through with heavy distortion and electronics that operate according to their own dream logic.
