Scott Tallon Walker Architects are delighted to be associated with the RIAI in the launch of the “RIAI Scott Tallon Walker Student Excellence Award” (the former RIAI Travelling Scholarship student award) in memory of Scott Tallon Walker Architects’ three founding partners, Dr. Michael Scott, Dr. Ronald Tallon and Robin Walker.
"The award aims to promote the study of contemporary architecture, encourage and foster architectural excellence among the student
body, encourage and facilitate communications between the schools and provide a basis for growing awareness of the architecture in society through exhibitions and publications supported by the RIAI".
Scott Tallon Walker fully supports the RIAI’s overall aims for the Travelling Scholarship competition and has donated €5,000 as a total annual prize fund. The submissions for this award formed part of an exhibition at the RIAI Annual Conference on the 25th and 26th of November 2016.
The competition was open to final year architecture students in the Island of Ireland. Entrants submitted an A1 collage of hand-drawn sketches, concept ideas, technical investigations, final design solutions, 3-D representations, and photographs of models illustrating their final year work.
Congratulations to the winner Sean Mahon, to Matthew Webb (second place), and to Kate Rushe and Orla O’Donnell (joint highly commended)!
