Award Winner

Gemma Ginty, DIT

We make the Opus Student Award to “Continuum — a Crematorium on the Threshold”, by Gemma Ginty. This is a powerful and imaginative thesis, thoroughly researched both in terms of the ritual of death and the architectural expression of loss in time and place. The flow of space, the ingress of light and the visual link to a renewing landscape are handled with rare skilled and humanity.
