Broadway Malyan launches new design program
Abu Dhabi, April 25, 2009
Broadway Malyan, a leading international practice of architects, urbanists and designers, has launched its graduate development programme in the UAE as part of its efforts to help nurture regional talent in the architecture and interior design.
The company, which employs over 600 people across 14 offices throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, launched the programme during Cityscape Abu Dhabi 2009.
Established in 1958, Broadway Malyan is now 51 years in practice and has most recently been ranked as one of the top 30 architecture practices in the world.
'Our graduate development programme aims to help nurture the true architect in architecture graduates by providing the most rewarding professional experience that the company possibly can,' said Melvin Davis, director of Broadway Malyan.
“Good theoretical training is a sound basis on which to build a successful career in architecture. But there's no substitute for hands-on work experience, and in today's job market this is absolutely essential,' he noted.
'This is the reason why Broadway Malyan is offering highly motivated and talented national students the chance to gain vital work experience on a placement with an international practice of architects, urbanists and designers.'
'We focus our minds and energies on creating environmentally sustainable places in which to live, work, and shop, harmonising form and function. We need the best new talent from the UAE to join us in enhancing people’s lives, because that’s what we believe architecture does,' Davis added.
Broadway Malyan believes strongly in creative cross-fertilisation. During the intern’s time with the company, they will be part of an expanding learning programme of internal seminars on best practice in design.
The participants will also attend lectures, presentations and exchange programmes with external professionals, he said.
“The graduate programme is a great way to encourage recruitment of young architects and designers, invest in their future, bring fresh talent to the team and encourage learning. We are delighted to now be in a position to launch a Graduate Programme in the UAE,” Davis added.-TradeArabia News Service
