Assistant Professor Kevin Moore won Best Creative Scholarship for his submission to the IDEC (Interior Design Educators Council) South Regional Conference 2013. Moore presented Beyond the Groundwork, a collaborative alumni exhibit designed and installed by Moore and Amanda (Herron) Loper (BArch 2005). The exhibit was organized by the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture and held at the Jule Collins Smith Museum in Auburn, Alabama in February 2011.
Professor Joceyln Zanzot’s collaborative video was recently published in the inaugural issue of PUBLIC, the on-line, peer-reviewed journal of Imagining America. Zanzot’s piece, called Common Ground in Alabama, explores four years of emerging pedagogy and methodology for community-based art and design practice through the Mobile Studio. The filmic essay features three key projects that cross scales from the state to the county to the schoolyard, exemplifying principles and practices of the studio.

Professor Robert Sproull’s winning entry in an international design competition held by the city of Quito, Ecuador in 2008, is currently featured as part of an exhibit called, “Airport Landscape Urban Ecologies in the Aerial Age” at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Sproull’s entry, designed in collaboration with Ernesto Bilbao, develops the Parque Bicentenario (formerly known as Parque del Lago) in a planning strategy for converting a local international airport into an urban green space on the same scale as New York City’s Central Park. The exhibit is open through December 19, 2013.
