Mary Ann Steane has won the Pilkington Teaching Prize for 2015, awarded by Cambridge University.

Official titles do not sufficiently convey Mary Ann Steane's deep understanding of and commitment to the problem of how architecture students learn to design. To successfully take on such a personal and subjective discipline requires both a teacher and an enabler: as well as conveying knowledge and experience, one must ensure that the student is in a position to be able to learn creatively. Mary Ann does a superb job of balancing these different aspects of teaching. In interacting with students and coordinating the Department’s design teaching fellows, she has devised undergraduate programmes that promote students’ imaginations yet serve to establish them as responsible young designers in the profession.
