Noura Ghabra, Janet Jing Huang and Rong Xu won their way to the top five final group in the annual student competition, with their design for a 'Healing Tower' in the Elephant and Castle site, London, 2012. They won the 4th equal prize. The five finalists and the 20 semi-finalists all have their work displayed on :
"This project aims to tackle both environmental and social sustainability through the design of a tall building that meets Passivhaus performance criteria while responding to the human needs of health and wellbeing. It accommodates a mix of functions. The design agenda is embraced within the building through three states namely relax, nurture and heal."
