Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 Director’s Project / Murray and Murray Competition!
This competition takes place at the first week of the fall term and celebrates the beginning of a new school year. The theme this year was Border Crossings: Conflicts. Migrations. Checkpoints. Visas. Quotas. Exclusions. Interrogations. Exceptions. Accommodations. Protections.
Students received a single piece of text from which they had to create a 15″ x 20″ drawing within a week. The projections were judged by the Faculty of the School as well as visiting professors.

Murray and Murray Award
The Murray and Murray prize has been a tradition at our School since 2003. The prizes are awarded annually to a graduate or undergraduate student in the M. Arch or B.A.S. program following a juried competition. The competition challenges students to develop and present an architectural idea through hand-drawn drawing and to demonstrate an exceptional ability in using scaled and rendered drawings that include the conventions of plan, section, and elevation. The prize was endowed in 2003 by friends, family and colleagues of Tim and Pat Murray.
