Architecture Alumni Win East Coast ICAA Award

Author: Rosalyn Wells

Architecture alumni continue to receive accolades for their design work with two graduates being presented with 2016 Stanford White Awards.  Molly Visk ‘16 and Connor Moran ‘15 both won for works completed while undergraduate students at the School of Architecture.

This was the fifth annual Stanford White Award Presentation, which recognizes outstanding design in the New York, New Jersey, and Fairfield County, Connecticut area or to architects who reside in that area.  Stanford White Awards are presented in the areas of residential design, commercial design, interior design, historic preservation and student projects. 


Visk designed a new Academy of the Fine Arts at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.  She believes that “This new Academy demonstrates how traditional design can satisfy a pursuit of innovative architecture and efficient building systems while providing a vehicle for sharing beauty and art with the world.”


Moran’s winning project was A Counter proposal to the New Samaritaine which was “designed in a neoclassical tradition typical of much of the Rue de Rivoli, taking precedent strongly from the works of Ange-Jaques Gabriel.”
