Scott Brownrigg presents new exhibition with the Stephen Lawrence Trust

26.10.10

The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and Scott Brownrigg are proud to present an exhibition exploring the architectural work of students who have benefited from the Stephen Lawrence Bursary Award Programme.

The free exhibition is being hosted by Scott Brownrigg at the practice’s Covent Garden offices and is open to the public from 26 October to 26 November 2010.  Both the exhibition and the accompanying portfolio book showcase the results of the Trust’s bursary programme and are aimed at those with an interest in art, architecture and the built environment.

Over the course of the last year, Scott Brownrigg has presented the work of architects and artists who challenge conventional perceptions of space – from aesthetic experiments to explorations of the conceptual, social and political forces that shape the built environment.  The work that has been produced by the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust bursary alumni will continue this theme. 

The exhibition consists of work by 12 students at varying stages in their architectural studies and has been curated by the students themselves:

  • Susan Abaniwo Graduated at Kingston University, currently working at The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust.
