A team of Aberdeen architecture students will travel to Japan next month as part of an international competition.
The RGU team ArchX will design and present their vision of an urban development in Shanghai, which uses sustainable technologies including a water-based cooling system from the sea.
The team, under the guidance of lecturer Dr Amar Bennadji, is made up of Krzysztof Kalita, Joe Inman, Viola Koenigs and Karolina Przynarowska, and made it through to the third stage of the eighth Virtual Design Competition.
Dr Bennadji said: “We are happy that RGU has secured a place as a finalist among many countries.
“I wish the team all the best to succeed in the last step and secure further recognition.”
A number of prizes will be awarded in Tokyo during the special ceremony in November, with a top prize of 300,000 yen.
