Louella Exton receives the Patricia Guthrie Memorial Award

Louella Exton, a Bachelor of Landscape Architectural Design graduate, has won the RMIT University Patricia Guthrie Award.

The Award is awarded annually to an outstanding female undergraduate degree student.

The award recognised the contribution that Louisa — and her peers — made to the landscape architecture student cohort and the wider discipline through her work on initiatives such as SLAB, the ROLE symposium and the Mungo Man Return to Country trip.

She is the first student from the School of Architecture and Urban Design to receive the award since 2004.

Louella is using the prize funds to develop a project exploring liminal spaces through the concept of 'the road' as an instrumental device.
