Architecture Students Win AIA New York State Student Awards
Two projects by AAP architecture students were recently awarded AIA New York State Student Awards.
Urban Incubator, by Lily Chung (M.Arch. '15), Dillon Pranger (M.Arch. '15), and Taylor Stollbert (M.Arch. '15), proposed a startup incubator program on the site of a former papeterie, or paper factory, in Nanterre, France. The jury said, "The goal of the project was to reinvent the site and that goal was met." The project was originally done for a fall 2013 M.Arch. core studio titled Nanterre Papeterie: Towards a New Urban Climate, taught by visiting critic Alessandra Cianchetta of AWP and Jeremy Foster, assistant professor in architecture.
An award was additionally given to Hong Ji Chen (B.Arch. '16) for An Ode to the Shipyard, a project that explored the use of recycled material in a co-housing project, serving as a sustainable node in Boston's North End. According to the jury, "The narrative was concise and straight forward," and "The concept diagrams and renderings supported the project goals." An Ode to the Shipyard was created for Housing Plus: Mixed Use — Boston, a third-year, B.Arch. core studio taught by Julian Palacio, visiting critic in architecture.
