Six Weitzman Master of Architecture students were among the 19 graduate awardees selected for Metropolis magazine's second-ever "Future 100" showcase.
Sponsored by CannonDesign, Daltile, Formica, Interface, Keilhauer, Rapt, Sherwin-Williams, and SOM, the Metropolis Future 100 is conceived as a showcase of the most talented students in the Class of 2022. Submissions came from top schools in North America, which Metropolis notes were a "diverse group—with many identifying as female, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, or neurodiverse—[and] they are leaders on their campuses, advocating for equity and inclusion through their work and extracurriculars."
The Metropolis team selected 56 interior design and 44 architecture students. Nominated by Andrew Saunders, associate professor of architecture and director of MArch program at Weitzman, the featured students include Dongqi Chen (MArch'22), Umar Mahmood (MArch'22), Danny Ortega (MArch'22), Dario Sabidussi (MArch'22), Peik Shelton (MArch'22), Yuxuan Xiong (MArch'22). Metropolis commented that these honors "speak loudly of [the Weitzman Master of Architecture] program and the quality of the work students are generating."
