2012 Ferguson Jacobs Prize in Architecture
Congratulations to fourth-year Architecture student, Tobie "Rain" Chan-Kalin who has been awarded the 2012 Ferguson Jacobs Prize in Architecture.
Rain will use her winnings to travel to Ireland, Scotland and England to study the libraries of Andrew Carnegie.
The Ferguson Jacobs Prize was established to promote the continuity of tradition in contemporary architectural practice. It encourages design excellence based on long-standing design principles that promote beauty and harmony in the built environment. 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.
