Myron Goldsmith Memorial Fellowship, 1st Place

This fellowship is awarded annually to a graduate student in the College of Architecture whose work focuses on the structural aspects of architecture. Studio projects were faculty nominated.
The idea of the competition was to develop a clear structural concept for the previously completed studio project, and in so doing, revisit the design from a structural perspective.
