    Nicholas Kristof Win-a-Trip finalist, UVA architecture student Hannah Silver!

    Hello Archinect!

    This year, Nicholas Kristof at the New York Times is picking one university student and one senior citizen to accompany him on a reporting trip in the developing world. One of the student finalists, Hannah Silver, is also an undergraduate architecture student at the University of Virgina. We have some UVA friends at the GSD (they're one of the few feeder schools into the M.Arch.I AP program), so I was pretty pleased to see this.

    Check out the entries from Hannah and the other student finalists here.

    You can also see the 60+ finalists, here.

    And if, after reviewing the entries, you want to advocate for one or more finalists, you can post a message (with your reasoning) on Kristof's Facebook page.

    I'm not necessarily suggesting that you support Hannah--the student entries are all really strong, in different ways--but I just wanted to celebrate the fact that an architecture student made it this far!

    Thanks for reading!

About this Blog

This blog was most active from 2009-2013. Writing about my experiences and life at Harvard GSD started out as a way for me to process my experiences as an M.Arch.I student, and evolved into a record of the intellectual and cultural life of the Cambridge architecture (and to a lesser extent, design/technology) community, through live-blogs. These days, I work as a data storyteller (and blogger at in San Francisco, and still post here once in a while.
