Iolo Rees, winner of the fifth Norman Foster Foundation Scholarship at The Bartlett School of Architecture

December 9, 2021

This year’s Norman Foster Foundation Scholarship has been awarded to Iolo Rees, who impressed the jury by his intuitive outlook on a variety of phenomenological observations from the natural world. It was noted that he was able to confidently express his views and considerations that underpinned his iterative investigations in a wide variety of documentation methods and thoughtful discussion. Panelists enjoyed Iolo’s visual playfulness and were encouraged by his deeper concerns for expanding his inspirations from nature in the field of architecture.

The Norman Foster Foundation funds the full academic fees of one student per year to ensure that the most promising candidates in Europe, regardless of means, have the opportunity to undertake the Bartlett School’s BSc Architecture Course.
