LOM establish new travel bursary in memory of Karla Roman

Karla Roman

Hunter Dunning Client LOM will be launching a new annual bursary. This bursary is named in memory of talented architect Karla Roman who was tragically killed while cycling to work in February 2017. The bursary will support architecture students with their travel as part of their education.

LOM is an architecture and design practice with a passion for delivering great projects that combine strategy and creativity. Their work ranges from furniture to skyscrapers, with key expertise in workplace design, residential architecture and design for education.

The company are quoted as saying: “Karla joined LOM at the beginning of 2015. During her two years with us, she qualified as an architect and worked on more than a dozen projects including a music academy in Hackney, a private house in Hampstead, a brain injury rehabilitation centre in Surrey and a community school in Ghana. As well as the UK, Karla worked in Italy and in her native Brazil. She was a creative and hard working designer and a good friend. Karla rapidly became a key member of our team and had commenced on a promising career.”

Applications for the bursary are now open to UK-based architecture students. £2,000 will be awarded to the applicant who can demonstrate the most compelling case for assistance. The successful applicant will be invited to give Karla’s colleagues at LOM’s studio in London a short presentation. This will outline how their studies and associated travel have benefited from the bursary.
