ARCHITECT Magazine’s annual Studio Prize celebrates the most innovative academic studios in North America.  The jury this year included Yolande Daniels, Eric Owen Moss, and Jennifer Yoos.

The studio led by Alexa Tsien-Shiang, Mersiha Veledar, and Yasmin Vobis explored form and space by starting with Paul Klee’s idea that “a drawing is taking a line for a walk.” Check out the work students completed in Veledar’s studio HERE and see all the Studio Prize winners HERE.
