Odile Lamy wins Canadian Architect Student Award of Excellence

This is an attempt to really understand a material. It has principles that are reminiscent of Indigenous ways of knowing, in its desire to develop a deep understanding of a material as a foundation for a later architectural exploration in built form. While the architectural application of this research could be more fully developed, the project’s sensitive nature, graphic presentation, and reflection on the traditional technique of stacked timber construction are all commendable. -Jury Comment
