AIA Europe Scholarship Awarded
AIA Europe is pleased to announce the 2016-17 AIA Europe Scholarship has been awarded to Jasmin Sadegh, a graduate student at the University of Stuttgart Integrative Technology and Architectural Design Research program (ITECH).
Jasmin moved from the US to Germany after earning a degree in Civil Engineering from Tufts University in 2013. At ITECH, she studies architectural design from various perspectives including structural, computational and fabrication, while her thesis research focuses on lightweight structures and Frei Otto’s form finding methods developed in Stuttgart.
AIA Europe supports architects with ties to both Europe and the United States, and The AIA Europe Scholarship supports the future generation of architects who aim to think and work across borders.
