Abroad horizon

Author: School of Architecture

Clay Rokicki, B.Arch ’06, has been awarded the J. Neel Reid Prize from the Georgia Trust. The annual award goes to an architecture student, intern, or recently registered professional for study travel that honors the legacy of Neel Reid, the Georgia architect whose travel abroad inspired some of the most notable classical homes and buildings in Atlanta and the surrounding region during the early 1920s. 

Rokicki will conduct a 12 day tour through England in June to study historic towns, buildings, details, and gardens. 

As a student at Notre Dame, Rokicki was a recipient of the Henry Adams Certificate for the graduating student with the second-highest GPA, as well as the Nellie Wynn Kervick Award for Design and Drafting. He is currently serving as president of the Young Institute of Classical Architecture and Classical America, and has lectured in Georgia Tech’s Masters of Science in Classical Design program. 

Rokicki currently works at Historical Concepts, a traditional architecture and planning firm in Atlanta.
