On 14 July Scott Brownrigg welcomed students to its London Covent Garden studio to discuss their work and their passion for architecture. A range of Scott Brownrigg employees at different stages of their professional careers, from a variety of different backgrounds, engaged in the review process to provide the ten shortlisted candidates with feedback on their work and presentations.

Scott Brownrigg has supported The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust for the last six years with fundraising support as well as various initiatives including paid internships to assist young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to follow a career in architecture. The charity was set up in 1998 as a national educational charity committed to the advancement of social justice as well as promoting architecture and the creative industries to young people, particularly from ethnic minorities.

Support for, and involvement with the Trust includes: providing students with first-hand experience of life within our busy architectural studio via work placements and mentoring programmes; coaching on interview techniques and CV preparation; showcasing students' work in an annually held exhibition at the London head office to raise the profile of the Trust’s work as well as the abilities of the students themselves.

Scott Brownrigg is committed to supporting the next generation of architects and through the Trust has provided guidance, encouragement and employment to many bursary students over the years.
