Regulars of the London Wetland Centre may be interested to learn of an imminent architectural addition to the site. As you undoubtedly know The Bat House Project is a competition initiated by artist and Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller to design a home for bats. Launched in June 2007, the competition has been open to architects, students, Schoolchildren and the public with the task to 'create a building of aesthetic and enviromental excellence' to entice both bats and bat enthusiasts to SW13. Tonight, at The Royal Institue of British Architects, the overall prize was duly presented to architectural students Jorgen Tandberg and Yo Murata for their excellent realisation of the brief (below). Worthy winners indeed, Congratulations!
