Broadway Malyan supports student competition in China
4th July 2018

Broadway Malyan’s Shanghai studio is one of the sponsors of an architectural exhibition and awards programme for the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC).

Organised by UNNC’s Department of Architecture and Built Environment, the event promotes the work of the faculty.

Several awards were given to students from both the undergraduate programmes of Architecture (Arch) and Architectural Environment Engineering (AEE). Broadway Malyan sponsored “Best Performance during UG Architectural Studies” as part of its efforts to engage with the next generation of talent in the industry.

“We believe it is important for professional practice to have strong links with education providers. It is a two way process; we get to hear the students share new ideas and creative responses to tasks and challenges in architecture and we can help inspire and guide them towards a successful career in our sector.”

Harry Hoodless, board director at Broadway Malyan, said: “We believe it is important for professional practice to have strong links with education providers. It is a two way process; we get to hear the students share new ideas and creative responses to tasks and challenges in architecture and we can help inspire and guide them towards a successful career in our sector."

The winner of the Broadway Malyan sponsored award was Ryan Jonathan, for his concept for a job centre for migrant workers (pictured left). His tutor, Ms Xin Wang, commented: “Ryan’s design is based on his strong urban research, which revealed that Shanghai is one of the biggest migrant cities in the world. The project creates a mixture of different types of spaces for different users, and create a small community for the people who are new to the city.”

Harry added: “The submission demonstrated a good understanding of the site context and a clear focus on trying to establish a clear narrative for the project. It has been designed to complement and interact with nearby commercial and cultural areas and the choice of materials and open spaces creates a welcoming environment.”

In addition to taking an active role in the undergraduate course through external reviews and industry panel workshops, Broadway Malyan is currently working with UNNC on projects including an innovation campus. The UNNC Innovation Incubator (pictured right) combines the latest thinking in education and workplace design to deliver spaces that blend collaborative and social spaces with formal research, learning and study areas.

The exhibition and award ceremony took place at the building of the Centre for Sustainable Energy Technologies, a new building that the department relocated to last year. It was opened by UNNC’s Provost, Professor Chris Rudd, and ABE’s Head of Department, Dr Ali Cheshmehzangi.
