2014 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship presented to Joe Paxton from UCL

Joe Paxton of the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London has been selected as the recipient of the 2014 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship for his proposal ‘Buffer Landscapes 2060’. Paxton will use the £6,000 grant to investigate measures taken to mitigate the effects of climate change, including reservoirs, artificial lakes and rivers. Regions referenced for potential visits include Kamerik Polder in the Netherlands, Los Angeles and the Himalayas.

Lord Norman Foster said: “The high standard of entries led to a lively discussion around several of the proposals, however I congratulate Joe Paxton as the worthy winner. The locations that he plans to visit have been carefully researched and he approaches the issue of global warming and flood protection from an interesting perspective, in looking at the wider opportunities that these resourceful landscapes may present.”
