Winner of the 2010 RIBA Goldfinger Scholarship announced

Luca Csepely-Knorr, a landscape architecture graduate and PhD student at the Corvinus University of Budapest, has been awarded the 2010 Goldfinger Scholarship by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). The award will go towards her MPhil course at the Art & Design Department, Manchester Metropolitan University during the academic year 2010/11.

Luca receives £14,000 to support her research, and pay for her fees during the academic year. Her research will focus on the work of Béla Rerrich (1881-1932), Hungary’s first town planner and one of the founders of landscape architectural education in Hungary, and Thomas Mawson (1861-1933), an English town planner and the Windermere garden designer.

The RIBA Goldfinger Scholarship has been running since 2002, following a generous donation by Ernö Goldfinger’s family. It provides one grant annually to support a young Hungarian architect through a period of postgraduate study in the fields of architecture, art or associated disciplines or a period of work experience in an UK academic institution or architectural practice.

The jury, which comprised of Michael Goldfinger, James Dunnett, Professor Kit Allsopp, and Ben Stone and Alex Bancroft representing the RIBA, were unanimous in their decision.

Upon receiving her award, Luca Csepely-Knorr said:

‘I am very happy to be the winner of the 2010 RIBA Goldfinger Scholarship. I am honoured that the jury of this prestigious Scholarship appreciated my previous academic and design achievements and found my prospective research at Manchester Metropolitan University promising and worth supporting. I am especially grateful that as a landscape architect I am able to receive an architectural Scholarship, which I hope will help make my profession more well-known and appreciated in my home country. I am sure that the knowledge and skills that I will acquire during my studies in the UK will be of great value to my future academic career. I am very excited about the prospect of living and studying in the UK for a year and I am looking forward to the start of my course in September.’
