Ferrier wins design award
August 25, 2008
A design by University of Texas at Arlington Architecture Professor Richard Ferrier has been chosen as a Texas Society of Architects Design Award winner.
Professor Ferrier’s “University Research (Conceptual Watercolour Drawings)” was one of nineteen designs selected for the award, from a pool of 354 entries. 267 of these entries represented built projects, while the other eighty-seven were conceptual in nature. A diverse collection of designs were recognized by the awards, ranging from a tranquil lakeside residence to a concrete studio and two courthouses.
The award winners were selected on June 27 by TSA’s 2008 Design Awards jury met in Austin, Texas. The jury consisted of Steven Ehrlich, FAIA; Billie Tsien, AIA; and arts writer Judith Dupré.
The 2008 TSA Design Award-winning designs will be featured in the September/October issue of Texas Architect. The Awards will be presented during the TSA convention in Fort Worth, October 23-25.
