  • The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and AHR have announced Boon Yik Chung as the 2016/17 beneficiary of the highly coveted RIBA AHR Stephen Williams Scholarship. The scholarship, will offer Boon personal academic mentoring by a member of staff at AHR and a £5,000 grant towards his studies.

    The RIBA AHR Stephen Williams Scholarship was established in 2008 and is offered in memory of Stephen Williams, a past Director at our practice. Stephen was a strong advocate for good design and thoughtful consideration of the built environment. He was always committed to promoting education and the award serves to continue his legacy.

    Boon Yik Chung completed his Part 1 at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, and was awarded the RIBA President’s Bronze Medal in December 2015. He is currently working at muf architecture/art LLP, and will be starting his MArch (RIBA Part 2) in September 2016, continuing at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.

    Boon said: 

    "First of all, I would like to express my biggest gratitude to AHR and RIBA for honouring me with the generous scholarship. Since arriving here to embark my journey in architecture, I have been immensely loved, supported, and inspired by the diverse architecture community. Last but not least, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my tutors, colleagues at Muf, family and friends who have showered me with their generous kindness, patience and love. And rejections and failures which have strengthened me. I look forward to sharing my research."

    The judges were also impressed by the work of Emily Priest, Architectural Association and AHR generously awarded her an additional £1,000 as a commendation prize.

    The judging panel consisted of from Laura Collins (Arcadis LLP and previous recipient of the scholarship), Jane Duncan (RIBA President), Brian Johnson (Director, AHR), David Simister (Creative Director, AHR) and Tony Watson (Education Trust Funds Committee).

    Portfolios from Boon and Emily can be downloaded from the RIBA website.
