AWARDS IN “THE STUDIO” PRIZE
Class A. Decorative Art.
A xxi. Design for a Sheltered Seat.
The problem set in this competition, though on the face of
it a simple one, has been read in varying ways by the com-
petitors, who have sent in designs ranging from the simplest
covered seat to domed structures of solid masonry. The
material proposed, however, is, as a rule, wood. A large
number of drawings have been submitted, but want of space
prevents us from remarking upon more than a few of the
Howler sends a very solid and substantial building. His
masonry piers, with their rounded angles and flat curved
tops, are rather reminiscent of another work. In the design
of Ferrus the whole of the central space is, so to speak, waste
room. The design of Putz is of a monumental character, and
shows rather more of unsheltered than of sheltered seat. A
favourite motif with some of the competitors has been the
arrangement of the seats crosswise with a circular roof;
Planet, Bertie, and T(Ho. 1) are illustrations of this method.
The design of Planet and that of Soapsuds suggest that
special precautions would have to be taken to prevent the
lifting of the roofs in a gale. T also sends another design,
entirely of wooden construction this time. He gets a rather
small number of seated people between his curved wings,
though this is presumably the important side of the shelter.
The two posts, moreover, would be a perpetual obstruction
to those sitting on the curved seat. Simplicity is pleasantly
simple in elevation, but, like others, he rather provides a
room with seats in it than a covered seat. Jack sends a very
pleasant design with the added virtue of explanatory details.
It is a pity he has introduced two obstructive central supports
under the bressummer. We could wish that in the design of
Lightning the clock turret were in rather better proportion;
it is somewhat too large and self-assertive. The design on
the whole is an interesting one, and its drawing is bold and
vigorous. Horman and Bux send simple but meritorious
designs. Ictinus submits an effective scheme, also with
simplicity for its note. In this the two openings are of so
considerable a width that we do not think the central stone
pier would be felt as an obstruction. The design is presented
in a remarkably pretty drawing.
