(Oct. 24, 2011) --Erik Leitner, a graduate of the UTSA Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) program, was honored with the Dean’s Award for Best Master’s Project for his design proposal on an independently researched capstone project. Leitner’s multi-use development for the Austin riverside was one of 40 design projects recently completed by graduate students.
“From the pool of nominated projects, I judge for esthetics, complexity and completeness of the design proposal that is presented,” said John Murphy, dean of the UTSA College of Architecture. “This is always a very difficult selection. I select the ‘Best’ award and one runner-up, the ‘Merit’ award.“
“Students represent their graduating class on a very high level of accomplishment as they pull all their graduate studies together in this final project,” said Murphy. “It is typically a centerpiece of their individual portfolios as they start their professional careers in architecture.”
The nominated projects were so noteworthy this year that Murphy chose two runners-up: Raul Baeza and Christopher Caillier received the Dean’s Merit Award for their class.
The awards were presented at the Graduate Awards Ceremony, which recognizes students who have completed a graduate certificate in urban and regional planning or historic preservation. Students received awards such as the Henry Adams Certificate and Medal presented by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Alpha Rho Chi Medal (commending student leadership) and the King Student Medal for Excellence in Architectural and Environmental Research.
This high school student exhibit features images, videos, interviews and writings that the students learned about while participating in "The Will to Adorn: African American Dress and the Aesthetics of Identity."
