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

  • Comment
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.'
