Ben Sheehan, Bachelor of Architectural Design, Master of Architecture. Since receiving the A.E. Brooks scholarship I have undertaken a preliminary trip to India in which I identified subtropical sites and buildings that are of particular interest to the project I aim to develop with the support of the scholarship. I continue to research preindustrial approaches, on the sub-continent, of developing memorable architectural spaces and managing subtropical climatic conditions. The beauty, grandeur and detail of Indian architecture developed outside the direct influences of the various colonial powers continues to amaze me. The A.E. Brooks Travelling Scholarship in Architecture was established in 1962 by a bequest of approximately $60 000 under the will of Arnold Edwin Brooks, a Brisbane Architect who died in 1958.
