Henriquez Partners Architects has established a $2,000 scholarship at the University of British Columbia (UBC), in memory of Brock Douglas Cheadle (1950–2020).
The Brock Douglas Cheadle Graduate Scholarship in Architecture has been made available to outstanding students entering UBC’s Master of Architecture program for five consecutive years. Preference will be given to students who are entering the M.Arch. program at least five years after completing their undergraduate degree.
Cheadle (B.Arch. 1988) practiced as an architect for 30 years. He was inspired to pursue architecture in his thirties after designing and constructing his family’s home on a rural property near Grand Forks, British Columbia.
During his seventeen year tenure at Henriquez Partners Architects, among the many projects he worked on, one of the most notable was as the lead architect for the Guest House in Gordon B. Shrum’s residence, a project that was awarded the Canadian Architect Award of Merit in 2002. Cheadle served as a mentor to anyone who had the privilege to work alongside him throughout his career.
The scholarships are made on the recommendation of UBC’s School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, in consultation with the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. The first award will be available for the 2021/2022 winter session.
