Architectural Technology student wins CIAT Student Award for Excellence

13 January 2014

Winners of the annual Student Award for Excellence in Architectural Technology 2013 have been announced by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.

These Awards recognise the work of students studying on an accredited Architectural Technology Honours degree programme.

University of Westminster student, Simone Ceccato, was named winner of the Student Award for Excellence in Architectural Technology (Project). Simone’s theoretical concept was a mixed use scheme entitled Maggie’s Centre. The judges were unanimous in their decision that this was an outstanding project that clearly demonstrated excellence within Architectural Technology, and how a very well integrated design incorporated the technology of architecture.

Simone Ceccato, who graduated from Westminster’s Architectural Technology BSc Honours last year, said: “I’m really grateful to be the winner of this amazing accolade. I’m proud of my achievement and would like to thank my tutors who have been extraordinarily supportive whilst studying”.

Virginia Rammou, Course Leader of Westminster’s Architectural Technology BSc Honours said: “It was a pleasure working with Simone. He was a dedicated, painstaking student and we are very proud of his achievements to date. We truly wish him the best for the future”.
