FW: RIBA ICE McAslan Bursary 2012 - £7,500 grant for students and recent graduates

September deadline for the RIBA ICE McAslan Bursary in 2012.


This is a great opportunity for current students and recent graduates to apply for up to £7,500 to develop an original design project that will cultivate positive change to communities and environments.


The project should encompass the ethos of John McAslan + Partners:

·         To create architecture that improves people's lives;

·         To aim for an architecture which is rational and poetic, robust and delightful;

·         To tackle problems head on and think laterally;

·         To deconstruct a brief and let a design emerge from close examination of the pieces;

·         A belief that buildings should be underpinned by a powerful idea;

·         that the idea should be an intelligent and logical response to functionality and a sense of place.

In addition to providing up to £7,500 of funding, John McAslan + Partners will offer mentoring support to the bursary holder.

To be eligible to apply, applicants must be a student or have graduated in the last 5 years from an RIBA-validated school of architecture, or a JBM-accredited engineering course.
