Howard Davies, Ipek Türeli, Sinisha Brdar and Andrew King.
The Lyceum Fellowship was established in 1985 to advance the development of the next generation of talent by creating a vehicle for stimulating perceptive reasoning and inspiring creative thought in architecture. Through a unique structure of design competition and prize winning travel grants it seeks to establish a dialogue through design among selected schools of architecture. The Lyceum Competition welcomes submissions from students attending one of the 14 participating schools. This year's competition theme was "Here and Now: A Call to Action." Students were asked to identify a socio-political problem in their communities, research the topic through engagement with the community and other means, develop an architectural program addressing the problem, map the story to the site, and compose a travel itinerary that expands on and explores these ideas.
