Students Honored by Architectural Organization
During the West Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects' 2008 design awards competition, a jury of architects, comprised of members of the organization's scholarship committee, selected two Fairmont State University student projects for recognition and commended the body of work represented by all of the students.
Brandi Smith, a senior architecture student from Buckhannon, W.Va., was honored with a $750 scholarship as winner of the Jeffrey Mayfield Design Competition for her concept for a sustainable transportation center proposed for the South Side of Pittsburgh. She is the president of the Fairmont State Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students and plans to pursue a graduate degree in architecture upon receiving her degree from FSU.
The Jeffrey Mayfield Scholarship is named in honor of the late Professor Jeff Mayfield, and is awarded to the student whose work demonstrates the highest regard for architectural principles and inquiry.
