The 2012 RIBA ICE McAslan Bursary has been awarded to architect Nicola Antaki to deliver an ingenious school design project in India. The prestigious annual bursary supports environmental and community projects in the UK and abroad.
The bursary of £7,500 will help Antaki’s project ‘Healthier learning spaces for municipal schools in Mumbai’ to develop affordable and reproducible prototypes of designs.
The first project to be supported through Nicola’s bursary will be the development of a roof garden at Lovegrove school in Mumbai.
ICE President Barry Clarke said: “Nicola’s vision is inspirational and a worthy recipient of the bursary.”
Antaki added: “I am very grateful to John McAslan + Partners for choosing to fund and support this project based in Mumbai. The school’s pupils, staff, families and I are all looking forward to the year ahead.”
