Ben Murphy Graduates with a 1st Class Masters Degree in Architecture.

We would like to congratulate our colleague Ben Murphy for graduating with a 1st Class Maters Degree in Architecture, Ben shares his project inspiration....

I am incredibly proud to have graduated with a 1st Class Masters Degree in Architecture (M.Arch) from Liverpool John Moores University, where I’ve studied for the last 7 years; and previously obtained a 1st Class Bachelors Degree in Architecture in 2021, and also won the ‘Claire Wrigley Lighting Prize’ for the best use of Natural Light within an Architectural Project for one of my undergraduate projects.

My final academic project was entitled ‘Connecting the City’, where I devised a masterplan for a dilapidated, post-industrial man-made island (Zorrotzaurre) in the centre of Bilbao. The project acknowledged how the island physically divides the city, restricts growth and makes travelling across the city awkward for residents; as such, the latter stage of the project included detailed designs for a Multi-Modal Transport Hub, where all of Bilbao’s public transport infrastructure (Rail, Metro, Tram, Bus, Ferry, Taxi) would converge to boost connectivity and ultimately benefit Zorrotzaurre and the wider Bilbao region. I’m also exceptionally proud that this project received a Nomination for the RIBA Silver Medal.
