Richard Morris Hunt Prize Final Reports Coming Online
Today we make an important advance in the development of the Richard Morris Hunt Prize by making accessible the research of our Fellows and Scholars.
This was made possible by a generous donation from the Sondra & Charles Gilman Foundation.
″It is our pleasure to be able to help the distribution through this website of such an important achievement in architectural research that cements the friendship between the French and American architects. Sondra Gilman and Celso Gonzales-Falla
The Final Reports are one of the tangible results of the work accomplished by our Fellows and Scholars. The Hunt Prize has the ambition of becoming a source of richness for the architectural profession.
We are pleased to announce the online publication of the Final Report produced by our first Scholar, the French architect Isabelle Michard, Architecte et Urbaniste de l’Etat, Architecte des Bâtiments de France, Cheffe du Service Territorial de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine (STAP) de Seine et Marne. Isabelle produced her report in 2012.
As remarked Mireille Grubert, Director of the Ecole de Chaillot, “The richness of the experiences exchanged between the two countries, which we often discuss in a theoretical way, are given concrete expression thanks to Isabelle Michard and the Richard Morris Hunt Prize. Her topic of research, Re-Use of Former Industrial Sites in the United States, combines aspects of urban planning, landscape, and economy to bring attention to industrial wastelands, a subject still poorly understood.”
