July 17 2008

University of Strathclyde Architecture graduate James Tait has won the RIAS Silver medal at the SIX Awards hosted by the Lighthouse-Scotlands National Centre for Architecture and Design.  This success follows our student Richard Penny awarded the Royal Scottish Academy medal in the spring. Both successes are the third time in five years each of the awards has been won by Strathclyde students.

Within the Faculty, following on the appointment of Gordon Murray and Alan Pert as Professor of Architecture and Professor of Innovation last year, further developments in the restructuring of the Course Management of the School of Architecture has resulted in a number of new appointments.  Dr. Jonathan Charley becomes Director of Cultural Studies, Mr. Mike Angus – Foundation Studies Director, and Mr. Chris Platt – Graduate Studies Director.  Dr David Grierson is appointed Director of Post Graduate studies.
In addition, in an innovative move to consolidate links between the School and Practice, five teaching fellows have been appointed as Year Studio Directors.  All are practicing architects who will retain involvement with their practices and bring that resource into the School to expand Research and Teaching opportunities.  Kathy Li, Davie McRitchie, Leslie Palmer, Peter  Welsh and Uli Enslein take up their posts in August 2008.

Continuing on this initiative the School will also  be expanding the popular Urban Design Course , currently undergoing  accreditation by RTPI, with the appointment in the Autumn of a new Professor of Urban Design.  This post will be advertised shortly.
