This year, a fourth-year Architecture Design student, Brigitte Martins, was awarded the Provost Scholar Award.
The Provost Scholar Award recognizes outstanding academic achievement in an undergraduate student at Carleton University. Recipients are awarded this honour based on undergraduate research, immersive learning, and community engagement. For the 2017-2018 academic year, eight students across a number of different faculties were recognized by the panel of judges for having demonstrated exceptional accomplishments in their respective fields.
Brigitte Martins was a recipient of this award thanks to her contribution to the Northern Nomad project, a net-zero energy and water tiny house design-build that was constructed on Carleton’s campus in the summer of 2017. Brigitte was the lead designer, one of ten students from the Faculty of Engineering and Design that made this project a reality. The Nomad’s research is centred around promoting sustainability in the building industry through the implementation of green practices, cognizant design habits, and smart technologies. Work is scheduled to finish early this summer and there will be a public outreach event.
