IE School of Architecture & Design have sponsored the “Class of 2011” award at the Architect of the Year Awards organized, last Tuesday November 15th  by Building Design at the Brewery in London.

For the first time this year, the six chosen graduates of the Class of 2011 were 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. www.stabilisingthedelta.co.uk

El pasado martes 15 de noviembre tuvo lugar en Londres la entrega de los Architect of the Year Awards, organizado por la revista BD.

El premio consiste en una beca para la próxima edición del MAMD en febrero 2012, el programa de máster de IE University orientado a la creación y la gestión de una empresa de arquitectura. 

Juan Lago-Novás Domingo seleccionó como mejor proyecto universitario al presentado por Clara Shields la Universidad de Strathclyde, que desarrolló un trabajo junto con su compañero de estudios Marianne Keating para el desarrollo gradual de un puebloen riesgo de inundaciones en la zona rural del noroeste de Bangladesh. El plan incorpora un edificio para el alivio de desastres y un centro de formación, organizados en torno a una serie de espacios sociales, enteramente construido con materiales autóctonos.  

Clara Shields y Marianne Keating  han estado trabajando desde entonces con la población local para diseñar un centro comunitario, integrado por una escuela, una clínica, una biblioteca y un espacio donde la comunidad pueda reunirse, discutir y jugar. Actualmente, ambos están buscando financiación para realizar el proyecto www.stabilisingthedelta.co.uk
