IE School of Architecture sponsor of the BuildingDesign: Architect of the Year Awards in London

21/11/2011 - IE School of Architecture

For the first time this year, the six chosen graduates of the Class of 2011were invited to compete for a fully funded year-long scholarship to the IE School of Architecture & Design in Madrid, to study on a new master’s business programme geared towards starting and managing an architectural firm.

Juan Lago-Novás Domingo, Director of the School, selected Cara Shields of the University of Strathclyde, who developed a project in collaboration with fellow student Marianne Keating for the phased development of a flood-prone village in rural north-west Bangladesh.

The scheme incorporated a disaster-relief building and training centre, arranged around a series of social spaces, entirely constructed from indigenous materials. The pair have since been out to work with the local villagers to design a community centre — incorporating a school, clinic, library and a space where the community can gather, discuss and play — and are currently looking for funding to realise the project.
