The judges commented:
It was a privilege to be asked to judge this competition as the range and quality of the work is truly outstanding. All of the entries showed great imagination and originality as they interpreted the concept of inhabitation from many different perspectives. (Mary Walsh, Director of Corporate Communications, Eurostar)
The project is in its second year now and I continue to be impressed by the dedication and imagination of the students. This year, the project has grown in stature and the quality of entries has also reflected the ambition of the students in each institution. (Chris Roberts, Programme Director, Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, Central Saint Martins)
We are in the second year of this partnership and I think we are now realizing even more potential for our collaboration. The support of Eurostar and the seamless connection it provides between London and Paris is an incredible asset. (Chloé Briggs, Chair of Foundation, Paris College of Art)
