Byera Hadley was a distinguished architect; dedicated to architectural education. In 1938, Byera Hadley made provision in his Will for a bequest to enable young architects who were graduates from a school in NSW to travel overseas in order to broaden their experience in architecture, with a view to advancing architecture upon their return to Australia. In presenting the 2016 Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship to 10 recipients, President of the NSW Architects Registration Board, Richard Thorp AM said;
“Architecture shapes our cities, streets and suburbs here at home. But global forces shape our architects. Over the last 65 years, the Byera Hadley Traveling Scholarships have made it possible for over 200 architects, students and graduates to travel, research and return - bringing global experience and exemplars back home”.
The 2016 winners included Nicole Larkin - 'Framing the wild edge: a survey of coastal pools in NSW and the formulation of strategies towards their integration along our changing coastline.'
