Berman Guedes Stretton were delighted to join the Architects Journal and sponsors the Lead Sheet Association, in announcing the winner of the AJ Writing Prize.

The prize is becoming a regular feature in the architectural calendar, and the quality of the writing exhibited in the shortlisted and winning entries was very high. We were also delighted to join the authors, as well as the other judges, the sponsors and the AJ at a celebratory lunch where the winners were announced by Christine Murray, the AJ's editor.

This year´s essay theme was ´Do architects have a duty beyond satisfying the demands of the client?´, and Alan Berman in his introductory speech referenced some of his favourite lines from the various work, including the first line of the winning entry which read: ´I made a deal with God, said the Priest´.

Details of the Award can be found on the AJ website, and a PDF downloadable article (3Mb)
