L’Union Franco-Britannique des Architectes / The Franco-British Union of Architects is inviting candidates to apply for The Drawing Workshop Bursary giving architectural students and young architects the opportunity to improve their hand drawing skills in Britain and France using the UFBA-FBUA network.
There are 4-6 bursary places covering travel and accommodation costs to attend a tutored Drawing Workshop weekend taking place in Cambridge on 18th – 20th March 2016. The Workshop will be led by Brendan Woods, who has exhibited at the RIBA and the Royal Academy. Drawing materials will be provided. There will be a food and subsistence allowance of £100 per recipient.
Visit the bursary page for more information and details in how to apply.
The 2015 Student Bursary has been awarded by the French Section to Thibaut Dini whose subject is ‘Re-use of Olympic Games sites’.
New Bursary Fund:
Member David Lloyd Davis and his family are setting up a new bursary fund in memory of his wife Elaine. This will be separate from the existing student bursary fund and will concentrate on encouraging hand drawing skills in young architects. A full announcement will be made in due course.
We thank all the applicants for this year’s Student Bursary where there were some interesting topics. This year’s Bursaries have been awarded to Nicholas Harrington and Anna Raymond.
Nick, who is studying at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow, will be exploring the friendship of Fernand Léger and Le Corbusier and the relationship between painting and architecture.
Anna, who is also studying in Glasgow, will be looking at innovative approaches to inclusive design, studying the design of access to cultural venues in Paris and Nantes.
March 2015 update:
We are now hoping that they will each make their presentations either at the Nantes Re-Union or the Joint Committee in Paris.
Money for the bursaries (£1500 each) comes principally from the interest from our specifically saved funds. In addition, this year we are very fortunate to have received an additional donation of £500 from Charles MacCallum’s family in memory of Charlie.
