Architecture student Chloe Anderson has been awarded the 2014 RIBA AHR Stephen Williams Scholarship
Anderson, who is about to start her part two at London Metropolitan University, has bagged £5,000 towards her studies.
Originally supported by Aedas the scholarship has been renamed following the practice split earlier this week.
Anderson, who completed her part one at the University of Sheffield said she was ‘beyond chuffed’ about the scholarship.
The scholarship, started in memory of past Aedas director Stephen Williams and now in its sixth year, was judged by AHR’s David Simister and Brian Johnson, RIBA president Stephen Hodder, Mary Duggan of Duggan Morris, John Waldron from the RIBA Education Trust Funds Committee, and Carol Willams, representing Williams’ family.
Johnson said: ‘We’re delighted to award this year’s prize to Chloe Anderson for her inspiring work. The standard of entries was exceedingly high and Chloe’s stood out by her creativity and attention to detail. Supporting students and young architects is central to the ethos of AHR and we will continue to work with the RIBA to support this prestigious prize.’
Hodder added: ‘Chloe’s dedicated work and ambition is to be highly admired. I’m delighted to award her with the scholarship this year; she demonstrated a remarkably wide-ranging portfolio of work which embraces a strong social component. We expect great things from her when she starts her Part 2.’
Last year the prize went to Mick Scott of Oxford Brookes University, and previous winners have included students from Sheffield University, the University of Bath, the Royal College of Art and Glasgow School of Art.
