Architecture student from north Wales is awarded national scholarship

Saturday 5 August 2017 – A budding graduate from north Wales will be able to start his Masters in Architecture thanks to winning an architecture scholarship of £1,500 in recognition of his creative talents.
Myfyr Jones-Evans, 20, from Pwllheli, beat off stiff competition to win the National Eisteddfod of Wales Architecture Scholarship which is supported by the Design Commission for Wales.

The scholarship, which is open to under 25 year olds from Wales or with a Welsh link, aims to give the most promising young architect an opportunity to further their understanding of creative architecture.
Mr Jones-Evans was awarded the scholarship for his response to a brief to design a school that could be sent to a disaster zone. Myfyr Jones-Evans’ came up with a design for a flat pack school that could be assembled by six people with no previous construction experience in one day.

Talking about winning the award, Myfyr Jones-Evans said: “I was over the moon to get the phone call telling me I was being awarded the scholarship. It was a lovely surprise, especially because it was so unexpected.

“I’ve just graduated with a First in Architecture from Liverpool John Moores University, and have been lucky enough to secure my first job with architectural practice Purcell in Conwy. This scholarship will help to fund the masters that I would now like to go on to do, potentially at Cardiff University. I’m especially keen to make the architecture I practice in the future pertinent to my culture and heritage.”

Scholarship selector and architect, Jacqui Walmsley, said: “From all the entrants that we say, Myfyr’s work stood out due to the hand drawings and models for his permeable housing. The use of hand drawing and physical models may be seen by some students as an outdated approach to learning, but they should not be underestimated as useful design tools.

“Through his response to the brief, Myfyr displayed a sensitivity and learning that we wish to encourage and support by giving him this well-deserved award.”

Carole-Anne Davies, chief executive of the Design Commission for Wales, said: “Wales should be a place known for its talent and innovation; a creative nation where home grown talent, and the best of the rest, can find opportunities, practice their professions and grow their design businesses in and from Wales. The scholarship is just one way to help support young architects at the formative stages of their training.”

The selectors were:
Paul Harries from University of Wales Trinity St David
Jacqui Walmsley from Studio Walmsley
