18 November 2014

Ulster University graduate, Roger Bonnar, has been awarded the bronze Royal Society of Ulster Architects(RSUA) President’s Medal which celebrates Northern Ireland’s top undergraduate architecture student. Roger received the major recognition for his work in creating a new vision for Glenarm Village.

He was commended for his transformation of a former industrial site into an innovative social hub for the local community. His project, which was developed during his final year at the Belfast School of Architecture, preserves the renowned limestone landscape while creating a modern space for restaurants, bars and accommodation.

Jenny Russell, Associate Head, Belfast School of Architecture, said: “Ulster University is producing the future generation of architects who are equipped with the expertise and creative flair to transform the built environment. Our graduates are award-winning and this is the sixth time in seven years that an Ulster University student has taken home this important prize. Roger’s award is testament to his hard work throughout final year and the dedication of teaching staff at the Belfast School of Architecture.”
