Award-winning local student from Birmingham

4th July, 2011

A local student at Birmingham School of Architecture has beaten off strong competition to win a top prize. Taghi Amirhosseini who lives in Birmingham recently completed the M.Arch Architecture course and won the Application of Theory Prize, awarded for the best application of the dissertation subject into the thesis project, sponsored by Hays, the world’s leading recruiting experts in qualified, professional and skilled people.

The purpose of the award is to promote, recognise and reward excellence in the field of architecture. Hays Architecture recently attended a prizegiving ceremony at the University to present vouchers and a framed certificate to the proud student.

Greg Lettington, Director at Hays, says: “This prize is a small step to reward the next generation for their hard work. Not only is it great to support students to pursue a career in architecture but we would also encourage students to explore the many employment opportunities that exist locally.”
