Bradley Sowter wins with his project: A Christmas Carol Film Sets
This year’s winner of the £1,000 3DReid Student Prize is Kent School of Architecture graduate Bradley Sowter for his scheme based on the narative of A Christmas Carol with an animation that captured the atmosphere and context of his proposal.
