The competition involves the top M.Arch students from each of the Architectural Learning Sites in South Africa who present their treatise design work, in competition, at a national event in Johannesburg. The competition has been run annually  for over 30 years and is the premier competition event in the architectural academic calendar; with only one student named as the “COROBRIK STUDENT OF THE YEAR", each year. Competitions like this are won by individuals, and congratulations to Riaan for his exceptional commitment and hard work! As a young student though, his path has also been integrally shaped and supported by many people; among them, us, as lecturers and support staff. A hearty thank you and congratulations therefore, to all staff, in both Departments, of the School of Architecture.
