Associate Professor of Practice Ferda Kolatan and graduate students in the Department of Architecture won the 2017 AIA Studio Prize and invite you to celebrate with them at this award presentation hosted by ARCHITECT magazine.

"Real Fictions Cairo," which creates new public spaces and captures lost sites in the Egyptian capital, was selected by the jury as one of the most compelling studios in U.S. architectural education today and is featured on the cover of the September 2017 issue of ARCHITECT magazine, the publication of the American Institute of Architects.

The project is an investigative collaboration between Ferda Kolatan’s 700 Design Studios and the Cultural Ministry of Egypt. Over the course of three individual semesters PennDesign students have traveled to Cairo and worked on the production of speculative architectural interventions toward a new kind of urbanism.

Students may register for the event and be entered to win a $25 gift card.
