ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS EARN BOWMAN DESIGN FORUM HONORS
MANHATTAN -- Five third-year architecture students earned honors at Kansas State University's 12th annual Bowman Design Forum.
The Nov. 17 forum, hosted by the College of Architecture, Planning and Design, brings internationally acclaimed architects to campus to discuss work by third-year students in the department of architecture.
One student from each of the department's five third-year studio sections was selected to present his or her design for a hypothetical Wildcat Winery on the Konza Prairie south of Manhattan. The small winery would also serve as an educational facility where Kansas winemakers could learn new techniques and the public could learn about Kansas wines. A model, drawings and a PowerPoint presentation were prepared by each student participant.
This year's guest jurors were Kirsten R. Murray and Les Eerkes, Olson Kundig Architects in Seattle; and Brent Bowman and Patrick Schaub, principals at Bowman Bowman Novick, the event sponsor.
The jurors awarded $2,400 in prizes to the winning students. Receiving honors were:
Zach Bodine, Lenexa, honorable mention award and $300. His studio instructor is Thom Allen.
Josh Goldstein, Littleton, Colo., honorable mention award and $300. His studio instructor is Emily Koenig.
Garrett Kilbride, Rolling Meadows, Ill., honor award and $750. His studio professor is Torgeir Norheim.
Ryan Stumpf, St. Louis, Mo., honorable mention award and $300. His studio instructor is Diana Trushell.
Katie Gallagher, St. Peters, Mo., honor award and $750. Her studio professor is David Sachs.
"The jurors were really impressed with the amount of thought and work that went into the projects," Schaub said. "Their solutions were impressive, especially for third-year students. Our guest jurors used the word 'ambitious' to describe their handling of a complex program on a sensitive site. The development of the concepts and the awareness of tectonics are to be applauded."
Brent Bowman, a 1972 K-State architecture graduate and principal of the Manhattan and Kansas City-based architecture firm Bowman Bowman Novick, sponsors the forum.
