Nationwide search for aspiring architects kicks off in London
2 April 2009 – Architecture for Everyone, an initiative created in memory of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence, will be kicking off in London as part of its search for Britain’s architects of the future. The most talented individuals will have the chance of winning an all expenses paid trip to study architecture at Harvard University, USA.
The campaign is looking for aspiring architects to take part in design workshops around the UK. Aimed at 18-25 year olds, particularly those from socially excluded or Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, the workshops will be led by architects from RMJM and other design professionals.
‘Architecture for Everyone’ is a collaboration between RMJM and the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust. Backed by politicians and celebrities, including Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Dame Kelly Holmes, David Lammy MP, broadcaster Jon Snow and Apprentice winner Tim Campbell, the campaign aims to increase diversity in the architectural profession.
