LONDON.- RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards 2010 The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced the winners of the prestigious RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards 2010 in association with Atkins.

Clare Richards from the University of Westminster won the Dissertation Medal for her work Happy Communities.

The RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards promote excellence in the study of architecture, rewarding talent and encouraging architectural debate world-wide. This year, a record 270 Schools of Architecture from over 60 countries were invited to nominate two of their best student design projects at Part 1 (first degree), two at Part 2 (second degree) and one dissertation. The Silver and Bronze Medals are awarded to the best Part 2 and Part 1 design projects respectively, and the Dissertation Medal is awarded for the best exploration of different subjects, methodologies and presentations.

Previous winners of the RIBA President’s Medals have included Simon Hudspith (Bronze Medal, 1980), Mouzhan Majidi (Silver Medal, 1987), David Adjaye (Bronze Medal, 1990), Sean Griffiths (Dissertation Medal, 1992), Ole Scheeren (Silver Medal, 2000).

The winners will be presented with their Medals by RIBA President Ruth Reed at a ceremony held at the RIBA on Wednesday 1 December 2010. The recipients of the Presidents Awards for Research, and the Annie Spink Award for Excellence in Architectural Education, will also be awarded their prizes at the ceremony.

Ruth Reed, RIBA President, said:'The annual celebration of the President’s Medals reward the outstanding young talent in schools of architecture in the UK and across the world, and this year is certainly no exception. Education is an area of great importance to me, and I warmly congratulate this year’s winners for their excellent work.'

Martin Pease, Atkins Head of Architecture UK, said:'In these troubled times for the construction industry, it is pleasing to see such talent and optimism displayed in the work of students. It is vital that we find a way to support this endeavour. This is why Atkins is delighted to again sponsor this years’ RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards.'

A number of other awards will also be presented at the ceremony, including Commendations in the three main categories.
