Five APDesign students win in 20th anniversary of Bowman Forum

2018 Bowman Forum Winner APDesign Architecture

Outstanding design work by five third-year architecture students in Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning & Design, or APDesign, earned honors at the 20th annual Bowman Design Forum on Dec. 7 in Regnier Hall on the Manhattan campus.

Sponsored by BBN Architects Inc. in Manhattan and hosted by APDesign, the forum brought acclaimed architects to campus to discuss work by students in the architecture department. The forum is an opportunity for students to present their work to architecture practitioners and educators for critiques.

One student from each of the department's five third-year studio sections was selected to present his or her design for "The Blue Valley Yacht Club." Each student participant prepared a model, drawings and a digital presentation.

The following students were awarded a total of $4,500 in prizes. All are third-year students as part of APDesign's five-year graduate architecture program.

Matthew Ho, Fairway, received the $2,000 Honor Award; and Alexandra Mesias, Lee's Summit, Missouri, received the $1,000 Special Merit. Garrett Scott, Wichita; Dean Randolph, Chesterfield, Missouri; and Lawson Endicott, Loma Linda, Missouri, were all $500 finalists.
