Winner of Ferguson Jacobs Prize in Architecture Announced
Third-year School of Architecture student Joseph Koon has been awarded the 2010 Ferguson Jacobs Prize.
The Ferguson Jacobs Prize has been established to promote the continuity of tradition in contemporary architectural practice.

Endowed by Mark Ferguson, Arch ’78 and Natalie Jacobs, Arch ’79, this prize of $5000 is available to students and faculty on alternating years in the School of Architecture. The prize supports projects that explore the classical tradition as vital knowledge to an architect’s education, practice and scholarship, or to individual apprenticeships and internships with a classical focus. Emphasis is placed on the dissemination of knowledge of the classical tradition and impact on the wider School of Architecture community.
The prize is awarded to faculty and students in alternating years. The 2010 prize is open to all second-year, third-year and fourth-year undergraduate students in the School of Architecture enrolled in the Bachelor of Architecture dereen program. A minimum QPA of 2.75 is required for application.
