SCI-Arc Alumna Wins 2015 AWAF Scholarship

Graduate student Sara “Noni” Pittenger (M.Arch '15) of SCI-Arc has been selected to receive a 2015 scholarship award from the Association for Women in Architecture + Design. A panel discussion and award ceremony will be hosted at SCI-Arc on Saturday, May 16, from 10am-1pm. The competitive annual award is offered to women pursuing higher education in architecture, urban planning, civil engineering and environmental design.

IVRV Design

The IVRV design champions the idea that beyond the crucial role of providing shelter, a well-designed home can help improve the lives and well-being of its residents, as well as the community beyond its walls.

Pittenger’s portfolio of work submitted for the award included several of her projects developed as a graduate student at SCI-Arc. Those included an urban housing project in Barcelona, Spain, a design for the United States Embassy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and a conceptual design for an affordable single family home, the IVRV House designed for families in the Habitat for Humanity home ownership program.
