Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation Announces the Recipients of the 2021-2022 GSAPP Incubator Prize for Alumni-led Projects
Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021-2022 GSAPP Incubator Prize. For this award cycle, the prize was dedicated to supporting new forms of anti-racist professional practice and to funding alumni-led initiatives that critically redefine community engagement and participation. Special consideration was given to proposals serving BIPOC communities, in particular projects that engage communities in Harlem.
The Prize was established in 2019 as an extension of the GSAPP Incubator, a project that seeks to expand the territory between academia and the profession, and promotes new models of practice by supporting alumni in the development of a wide range of new ideas and projects about architecture, contemporary culture, and the future of the city. The cohort of Prize recipients will meet in closed workshops during the course of the year, and will present their projects at a public event at the School during the Spring 2022 semester. The School is awarding prizes this year to the following recipients:
Nelson De Jesus Ubri ‘21 M. Arch/MSRED
Mustafa Faruki '10 M.Arch
Luiza Furia '20 M.Arch
Fabrizio Furiassi '19 MSAAD
