Mussenden receives architectural award
Francis Mussenden, an intern with OBM International, has been awarded the Stanley G. Kennedy Architectural Award by the Institute of Bermuda Architects.
Mr Mussenden receives a cash award of $8,000 to assist with education costs.
A graduate of Warwick Academy, he attends The University of the West of England in Bristol. He has completed his first year of studies, with the goal of graduating with a BA (Hons) Architecture and Planning in 2022. He is in his third year of summer internship with OBMI.
To qualify for the award, candidates must be a Bermudian student enrolled in a programme leading to an accredited degree in architecture. Preference is given to candidates who have completed at least their first year of study and who demonstrate a high degree of academic merit.
The IBA established a fund enabling an annual award to be made to one or more Bermudian students. The award winner is selected by the education committee as appointed by the council of the IBA.
The award is named after Stanley G. Kennedy, an architect who devoted much of his life to advancing educational and professional standards in the architectural profession both in Bermuda and in Jamaica.
