    The ARTiculation Prize has been designed to give young people a forum in which they are able to express their own ideas on art. ARTiculation was established 10 years ago by Madeline Bessborough, Director of New Art Centre and Lucy Salisbury, Head of Roche Court Educational Trust.

    ARTiculation is open to any sixth form students studying any subject and is well placed to highlight Higher Education and career opportunities to students. Students use ARTicualtion to support their A-Levels, Personal Statements, C.V., EPQ Awards, Arts Awards and Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Last year 4000 young people took part. ARTiculation was described by the artist Antony Gormley as ‘changing the future of British art criticism for the best’.

    This is the fifth year I have taken Camden School for Girls students to the Whitechapel to speak and our speakers are usually very highly commended by the founder and organisers but never chosen by the adjudicator.

    This year Lewis Duncan changed this pattern with his excellent talk on Erno Goldfinger’s 1967 Balfron Tower and was a joint winner of the quarter final.

    The adjudicator Jo Stella-Sawicka, the Artistic Director of the Frieze Art Fair, praised Lewis for ‘his eloquent and well measured debate’ and she was impressed by his technical description of form and material. She was interested by his debate around social housing and its legacy and his thoughts around how architecture can influence people of today.

    Lewis will give his talk again in the semi-final at the National Gallery on the 24 February.
