João Prates Ruivo and Raquel Maria Oliveira win UPTO35 competition (Greece) > don't think obvious cross shapes in the facade would be considered acceptable for general student accommodation in the UK.
Scape student housing by Ab Rogers Design. Looks very luxurious compared to the student halls when I was an undergraduate.
Smart student unit by Tengbom. Pretty, but would need too much ground for most British university locations - & I'd never have gone up those steps even when I was 18!
Student housing with a coral-inspired facade by Atelier Fernandez & Serres. Distinctive building - but I wonder if it works for its occupants?
MySpace student housing in Trondheim by MEK Architects
"Prison-like" student housing wins Carbuncle Cup 2013.
Blok 1 by GROUP A. Looks like a defensive structure more than student accommodation.
MM Apartment by Nakae Architects and Ohno Japan > looks very dark, and the stairs look very steep. No need to make buildings accessible for disabled people in Japan?
