Architecture for Everyone: Summer School

Architecture for Everyone runners-up win summer school placement in Bristol

22 June 2009 – Six young people from inner city areas of Britain will work with leading urban design experts in Bristol this week to design new public spaces for the city.

Over the last three months, RMJM – in partnership with the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust – has held design workshops in cities throughout the UK designed to tackle the lack of diversity in the profession.

Twelve of the most talented individuals identified through the workshops were then invited to take part in a competitive interview judged by an illustrious panel. Six finalists won the opportunity to study at the world renowned Harvard Graduate School of Design in Boston for six weeks, with the six runners up winning a place on the flagship Urban Design Summer School in Bristol sponsored by the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE).
