The 2010 RIBA Goldfinger Scholarship has been awarded to Luca Csepely-Knorr to undertake an M.Phil at the MSA. Luca will be studying the work of Bela Rerrich (1881-1932), independent Hungary’s first town planner who had studied under the Windermere garden designer and town planner Thomas Mawson (1861-1933) prior to the Great War. Rerrich’s principal achievement was the cathedral square, Dom Ter, in Szeged which is pictured. Luca will be supervised by Eamonn Canniffe and Sally Stone.
The estate of the late architect Ernö Goldfinger (1902-1987) endowed scholarships in 1999. The scholarships are administered through the RIBA to support young Hungarian architects through a period of postgraduate study (in the fields of Architecture, Art or associated disciplines) or work experience within a UK academic institution or architectural practice.
