'This project stood out for its graphic storytelling, and its ability to communicate a scheme, within a show genre where the viewer can often struggle to assemble in their mind the students' building proposals from the material provided. Backhouse's building itself is relatively simple; this isn't an architectural tour de force. But it is beautifully illustrated through a well-presented and engaging collection of plans, elevations and sections that are almost storybook-like in quality, and that allowed the viewer to gain a real sense of what this place might be within the city.'
