The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and AHR (formerly Aedas UK) have announced future Chloe Anderson- who will commence study at The Cass this September- as the 2014/15 beneficiary of the highly coveted RIBA AHR Stephen Williams Scholarship, currently the most generous single scholarship the RIBA makes to students in financial need.
The scholarship, will offer Chloe personal academic mentoring by a member of staff at AHR and a £5,000 grant towards her studies.
Chloe Anderson, who completed her Part 1 at the University of Sheffield and will be starting her Professional Diploma in Architecture (RIBA Part 2) in September 2014 at London Metropolitan University, is interested in the potential of the design process as a tool for engaging with social issues.
She was a Project co-founder of ‘CreatePlay’ which involved the design and construction of an inclusive outdoor play-space in Bulgaria. Located in the grounds of a mainstream nursery school, the project aims to reduce the exclusion of children with disabilities through the informal and un-orchestrated nature of play, offering the unique ability to overcome social barriers by providing a playground that is sensitive to the needs of all children, regardless of their [dis]abilities.
On hearing the news she had been selected for the prestigious scholarship, Chloe Anderson said: “I am beyond chuffed to be the 2014 recipient of the RIBA AHR Stephen Williams Scholarship which will provide the much needed financial support for me to begin my Part 2 studies in London. The support offered by AHR and RIBA is invaluable and I'm very excited about the opportunities the scholarship will present over the coming years.”
The judging consisted of input from Carol Williams (representing the Williams family), David Simister (AHR), Brian Johnson (AHR Chairman), Stephen Hodder (RIBA President), Mary Duggan (RIBA Education Committee) and John Waldron (RIBA Education Trust Funds Committee).
Chairman of AHR, Brian 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. ”
RIBA President Stephen Hodder said:
“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.”
