We established the AJ/Curtins Inspiring Graduate Prize in 2015 to celebrate young talent in architecture by identifying graduates that display a combination of business acumen and rigorous design skills. Our winner in 2018 was Irina Korneychuk of FaulknerBrowns Architects.
Recognising and nurturing young talent to enable them to reach their full potential has always been a key driver for Curtins – from day one when Bill hand-picked graduates from his college course to start the business with him, to launching the Curtins Academy in 2014.
Rob Melling, CEO of Curtins comments:
“In memory of Bill, Curtins established the Bill Curtin Medal for Innovation in Civil Engineering Design which is awarded annually by the ICE. But why stop there? We want to take this approach to the development of individuals and apply it to the wider industry by identifying, praising and inspiring future generations in other disciplines too.”
