The Illinois School of Architecture is offering a virtual Discover Architecture Program via Zoom to introduce high school students and recent graduates to the discipline of architecture both as a profession and as a field of academic endeavor, from July 13-17, 2020.
The Illinois School of Architecture is pleased to announce the winners of the Earl Prize in Design (undergraduate) and the Graduate Awards for Design Excellence for the Spring 2020 semester. These awards recognize the outstanding student work at the sophomore, junior, senior, and graduate levels of our curriculum. The Earl Prizes are funded with income from an endowment bequeathed by Edward C. Earl and are awarded for excellence in undergraduate design studios.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we cannot share the same physical space to honor our Graduates but we gather in spirit, in warmth and in heart to commend the hard work and diligence of our graduating class. We have missed the rhythm of your movements, activities and commotions in the halls of the Architecture Building and Temple Buell Hall but know that you have left an indelible mark that will continue to be the school’s heartbeat. Your imagination and creativity will live on as part of the ISOA. WE CELEBRATE YOU CLASS OF 2020! Please enjoy this video salute to you!

Please help us celebrate all of our 2020 recipients by enjoying this video. Congratulations!

Aaron Brakke, Assistant Professor and Founder and Director of WHITEKNEE, has been working with a community living in an informal settlement on the outskirts of Bogota for the past five years. Through a participatory design research process, he was able to help the community develop new collective imaginaries for their ‘barrio’, developed a design, and helped them build a park on what had been an empty lot full of trash and construction debris.
