Wallenberg Studio Award, 1st Place

Raoul Wallenberg graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in architecture in 1935. In honor of his memory, the Raoul Wallenberg Endowment was established by the Benard Maas Foundation (David Engelbert, Director). In addition to gifts and matching gifts from the foundation, alumni also made donations to acknowledge Wallenberg's incredible courage.

Wallenberg's legacy is "architecture/design as a humane social art." During WWII, Wallenberg designed/created shutzpasses. Those fortunate to receive one were protected from the atrocities of the Nazis, particularly in Budapest. Wallenberg was responsible for setting up safe houses and issued "passports" that spared thousands from the concentration camps.

Each year the architecture program exhibits and juries the best work from the final undergraduate design studio. Awards, funded by the Raoul Wallenberg Endowment, are offered in the form of a stipend for international travel to a country of the student's choosing.
