Reception to follow

A juried exhibition of exceptional thesis projects by SCI-Arc 2010 graduates will feature the winning projects and several other outstanding projects selected by jurors. The exhibition will be on view in the SCI-Arc Gallery, September 20-October 1.

Best graduate thesis students honored this year are Leigh Turner Jester (M.Arch 1) for The Labyrinth and the Sectional Object, Naureen Meyer (M.Arch 1) for The Cosmetic Limit, Joshua Moratto (M.Arch 2) for D.O.A. or Drawing Unrestraint, Jaitip Srisomburananont (M.Arch 2) for The Meat Locker, and Michael Young (M.Arch 2) for A Home within a Home.

Thesis winners were announced by director Eric Owen Moss at SCI-Arc's commencement ceremony on Sunday, September 12.

Graduate students selected to exhibit alongside the best thesis winners in the 2010 Selected Thesis Exhibition are: Bjork Christensen, Robert Eleazer, Kristen George, Sona Gevorkyan, Nicholas Edward Kinney, Owen Merrick and Jonathon Stahl.

An integrated two-term experience, the thesis program at SCI-Arc is designed to engage the interests and methods of working of each individual student. The first term is primarily dedicated to research, and to the development of a formal thesis proposal that rigorously lays the groundwork for the in-depth design study expected during the following term. The thesis term itself is dedicated to exploring responses to the inquiry posed by the thesis proposal. Graduate thesis reflects SCI-Arc's rigorous architectural education that is responsive to cultural change, promotes architectural experimentation and creative and academic freedom, and supports a fluid relationship between education and practice.
