USA - Global design and BIM software provider Vectorworks continues to support the next generation of designers, naming Kristopher Clemson winner of the 2019 Richard Diehl Award, the grand prize for the Vectorworks Design Scholarship.
With over 1,600 submissions, scholarships were awarded to 20 student projects from the architecture, entertainment, landscape and interior design industries. Winners included both individual and group submissions.
The winning project, The Octagon submitted by Clemson, a recent graduate of Full Sail University and founder of Bifröst Lighting, focuses on lighting design, Vision and MA 3D renderings. Clemson used Vision alongside Vectorworks Spotlight to help with previsualization and implementing MA lighting on a PC.
“It is an incredible honour to receive this scholarship and to be the first entertainment winner of the Richard Diehl Award,” said Clemson. “As my first time applying to the Vectorworks Design Scholarship, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I struggled with the design process, but the usability, flexibility and overall presentation was achievable with Vectorworks software. I advise anyone looking to apply next year to suffer for your art and to ensure you have a well-balanced life of creativity surrounding yourself with creative mentors and friends.”
Pyura: The 333 Tour by Mauro Pujia, Polytechnic University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid) was winner of the entertainment category.
“We congratulate all winners of this year’s Vectorworks Design Scholarship, and we hope these scholarships play a fundamental role in their education,” said Vectorworks marketing programs director Alice Lowy. “Each year, we receive more submissions and are always impressed with the quality of work the next generation of designers come up with.”
In addition to the monetary awards, winners received free Vectorworks educational software licenses for their schools and complimentary training for faculty and students.
