2014 Student Bursary awarded

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.
