Australian family business Stormtech, which has been a regular supplier of drainage channels and systems to projects by Pritzker Prize winning architect Glenn Murcutt, has announced that it will fully sponsor a selected Aboriginal architect, graduate or senior student of architecture to participate on the two-week residential 2011 Glenn Murcutt International Architecture Master Class to be held at 'Riversdale', the Arthur and Yvonne Education Centre, on the banks of the Shoalhaven River near Nowra south of Sydney and at the Carriageworks Centre for Contemporary Art and Culture, Sydney, 10 - 24 July 2011.
Stormtech was founded by John Creighton in 1989 after he invented a drainage solution for a hobless shower for a wheelchair bound client. The company is now run by his son Troy Creighton. Winner of a Design Mark at the Australian Design Awards and a member of the Standards Australia Committee, Stormtech exports its range of architectural drainage systems all over the world.
The scholarship will cover tuition fees, all accommodation and most meals over the two-week program. The Master Class has been running annually since 2001 and has attracted 300 architects from 55 nations across the world.
