Sophie in line for awards
A THIRD-year architecture student from the University of Dundee is up for two national awards.
Sophie Curran, originally from Auchterarder, has been nominated for the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) President’s Medal — regarded as the most prestigious international award in architectural education — which celebrates outstanding design work.
She has also been shortlisted for the Women in Property Awards finals in London next month.
These nominations come after a semester of success at the university in which Sophie was awarded the Dundee Plus award in April, the Michael Spens award for best design Theory and the JT McLaren award for highest marks at her third-year degree show.
She said: “It’s quite unbelievable to be up for these awards.
“I’ve wanted to be an architect since I was seven.
“We lived in London and I used to walk over the transformed Putney bridge.”
