Aspiring architects at a Hackney school were awarded prizes in a national competition.
Three teams from Mossbourne Sixth Form’s architecture and built environment programme entered this year's construction challenge set by MyKindaFuture and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
Entrants had to imagine the redevelopment of the former Tilbury power station in Essex and three teams from Mossbourne designed a new cultural centre, a wildlife nature reserve and a water park.
Working with The London School of Architecture, the pupils presented their proposals in a filmed submission to CIOB.
All three Mossbourne teams made the final, including a team made up of Christopher Hew, Lukas Berr and Louis Skelding.
