About the Scholarship

The Mark Fisher Scholarship has been established in memory of Mark Fisher, a graduate and inspiring teacher at the Architectural Association School who sadly died in June 2013. The Scholarship has been initiated by James Fairorth and Tait Towers, who worked closely with Mark on ground-breaking music performance events around the world.

Mark combined his skill as an architect and designer with a passion for rock and roll, pioneering the modern stadium performance and with it reimagining what we understand as the architectural spectacle.

The Scholarship¬†awards equivalent of two full years’ school fees (for Fourth Year and Fifth Year) ¬†in support of a student of exceptional talent and interest in the intersection of architecture, performance, media and engineering.

Please note: The Mark Fisher Scholarship is not awarded each academic year. It will not be awarded for the 2020/21 Fourth Year entry.
