First Place in the RIBA Eye Line Competition \

Tom Noonan has won first place in the RIBA Eye Line Competition. The judges unanimously voted him the winner out of more than 250 submissions. Drawings from his Reforestation of the Thames Estuary were described as immensely accomplished and detailed works that merge the best of hand drawing and digitised techniques.

They were conceived as part of Tom's diploma project whilst studying at the Bartlett School of Architecture, which imagines the transformation of a city and its environment, in a future where timber is to become the City’s main building and energy resource.

Taking around a year to produce, the 30+ large drawings of the series describe the project from various perspectives and scales.

Each 'finished' drawing is montaged from a number of components, hand-drawn on drafting film with Rotring pens and Indian ink. The collection of original drawings is housed in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert museum in London.
