APDesign awards Heintzelman and Kremer prizes
Excellent 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 presented annually for outstanding individual design achievements by students in the final semester of the professional Master of Architecture degree program. The 2019 winner is Chandlor Wilson, Master of Architecture graduate, Denver, Colorado, for his project "Stratum," which was completed in the fifth-year architectural design studio led by Wendy Ornelas, professor of architecture.
The following 2019 Master of Architecture graduates are nominees for the Heintzelman Prize: Shea Ensor, Paris, Missouri, project title "Tuttle Creek Interpretive Site," completed in the studio of Bob Condia, professor of architecture; Nick Horvath, Hoffman Estates, Illinois, project title "Century Market," completed in the studio of Genevieve Baudoin, associate professor of architecture.
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 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.
