McAslan Bursary gives £15,000 to schemes around the world

This year's McAslan Bursary, set up by John McAslan to support schemes with an environmental and community agenda, has been awarded to four projects around the world - including a scheme in Transylvania, Romania being undertaken by Architects for Aid (see our Architects for Aid blog at www.ajplus.co.uk/aid ).

The bursary, administered by the RIBA and the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE), has given more than £15,000 to the four schemes.

A team working with Architects for Aid has received £3,300 for the conservation of Saxon buildings in Transylvania, which the group hopes will build upon a 'valuable architectural heritage'.

Sophie Handler, from muf, has won £5,000 to set up workable interventions in public space for older residents in Newham, east London.

The Architectural Association's Asif Khan and Julia King receive £7,240 for their refugee housing project on the Thai/Burma border.

And another student, Julia Bouvy from Oxford Brookes, has received £1,000 for her project to regenerate embankment life in west Africa.

John McAslan said: 'This is the third year of the bursary, which I am pleased to continue with the RIBA and ICE. Without doubt this year has seen the highest quality of entries and a fantastic range of projects both in the UK and abroad.'
