Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation Announces the Recipients of the GSAPP Incubator Prize for Alumni-led Projects
Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (Columbia GSAPP) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019-2020 GSAPP Incubator Prize. Dedicated to the topic of Climate Change at the Building Scale, the Prize offers direct financial support to projects created by GSAPP alumni that advance environmental concerns in architecture and its related fields. In response to the many strong proposals received, the School will award six prizes of $10,000 each. The recipients are Greta Hansen, ’09 MARCH; Dan Luo, ’14 MARCH; Eugenia Manwelyan, ’11 MSUP; Adam Marcus, ’05 MARCH; Stephen Mueller, ’06 MSAAD; and Anahid Simitian, ’15 MSAAD. Collectively, their projects reflect the breadth of approaches bridging critical discourse and active practice, with which Columbia GSAPP’s alumni community engages this pressing issue.
The Prize recipients will convene at Columbia GSAPP in a closed workshop during the Fall 2019 semester, and will present the status of their projects at a public event at the School during the Spring 2020 semester.
