MANHATTAN — Outstanding design work by fifth-year students in the architecture program at Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning & Design, or APDesign, has been recognized with the Heintzelman and Kremer prizes.

The Heintzelman Prize is awarded annually for outstanding individual design achievements by students in the final semester of the professional Master of Architecture degree program. The Kremer Prize is awarded for outstanding collaborative design achievements by students in the final semester of the professional Master of Architecture program.

The 2014 Heintzelman Prize winner is Travis Shockley, master's graduate in architecture, Marion, for his project "EPA Lab," which was done in the fifth-year architectural design studio led by Michael Gibson, assistant professor of architecture.

The 2014 Kremer Prize winners, all master's graduates in architecture, are Lillian Cooper, Atchison; John Joseph Nicolas, Garnett; Alexander Meyer, Leawood; Elias Logan and Nick Ruggeri, both from Manhattan; Brandon Christian, Mulvane; Meredith Dabney, Topeka; Liliana Torres, Pembroke Pines, Florida; Nathaniel Cook, Holland, Michigan; Michael Luczak, Kansas City, Missouri; and Andrew Zelenak, Liberty, Missouri. The group won for their project "Urban Acupuncture — Colonia Doctores," which was conducted in the fifth-year architectural design studio led by Javier Sanchez, the college's Victor L. Regnier visiting chair in architecture.

The annual Heintzelman-Kremer jury took place Friday, May 9, with winners announced at a special event that evening. Jurors this year were Zoka Zola, principal of Zoka Zola Architecture + Urban Design, Chicago, Illinois; Ian Colburn, design architect at Snohetta, New York, New York; and Eric Hoffman, professor of practice at Washington University, St. Louis. The hosting of jurors and events was underwritten by John Davidson Jr., Davidson Architecture + Engineering, Lenexa, and a 1987 Kansas State University architecture alumnus.

The Heintzelman Prize is named after J. Cranston Heintzelman, a longtime educator in the university's architecture department. After earning a Master of Architecture from Columbia University, Heintzelman moved to Manhattan in 1947 to begin what became a distinguished career teaching architectural design, sculpture and design theory. The Heintzelman Prize has been awarded by the faculty each year since Heintzelman's retirement in 1983.

The Kremer Prize is named after Eugene Kremer, a longtime member and head of the architecture department. As an educator and adviser, Kremer fostered in thousands of students a passion for learning and a desire to achieve excellence in all areas of responsibility. While working tirelessly throughout his tenure to promote strong and lasting relationships between practicing architects and the college's students, Kremer also endeavored to create opportunities to engage students in collaborative activities, both on and off campus.

Earning honorable mention for the Kremer Prize was "The Mobile Office for Asian-Americans for Equality," conducted in the fifth-year architectural design make studio led by David Dowell, el dorado inc., Kansas City, Missouri. Nominated for the Kremer Prize were "Washington Square Park," conducted in the fifth year architectural design studio at the Kansas City Design Center led by Vladimir Krstic, professor of architecture; and "Pier 58: A Response to the Evolving City," conducted in the fifth-year architectural design studio of Dragolsav Simic, associate professor of architecture.
