We are delighted to award the 2015 British Land Celebration of Design Medal for Design Innovation, sponsored by PCH, to Peter Brewin and Will Crawford from Concrete Canvas.
The Medal celebrates entrepreneurship in all forms, both locally and internationally, and honours those who have built one or more businesses in which design is at core of its development and success. Previous winners include Nicolas Roope, David Constantine and Jane ní Dhulchaointigh.
2015 Medal winners Will Crawford (MEng) and Peter Brewin (MEng), developed Concrete Canvas and Concrete Canvas Shelters to exploit a unique material technology whilst studying Industrial Design Engineering at Imperial College and the Royal College of Art in London.

Their company, Concrete Canvas, is a brilliant example of a simple innovation that has become a platform for builders, makers, designers and artists sparking creativity and opportunity across industries.”Liam Casey, Founder and CEO, PCH
