AZ Awards: Best Student Project


Professional Masters students Caileigh MacKellar and Newsha Ghaeli won the A+ Award for Best Student Project in both the jury and People’s Choice categories in the annual AZ Awards, an international awards competition sponsored by Azure magazine, for their project “Polytropism – Tower Concept,” developed in the M1 studio of Prof. Aaron Sprecher. Sixty finalists were selected from over 600 submissions by a jury composed of architects Imola Bérczi of UNStudio and Brigitte Shim of Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, industrial designer Jeffrey Bernett of Consultants for Design Strategy, interior designer Elaine Cecconi of Cecconi Simone, landscape architect Jennifer Guthrie of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol, and Mike Kielhauer of office systems manufacturer Keilhauer. People’s Choice awards were also designated, following weeks of online voting earlier this year.
