The Boston Society of Architects recently announced Elle Gerdeman, an associate at Höweler + Yoon, as the 2018 Rotch Travelling Scholar. Attracting over 95 applicants this year, six finalists were selected in the first rigorous round of the competition and presented to the jury in Boston. In the end, Elle Gerdeman won with her project “Pixels to Pulp”, pictured below. She’ll receive $38,500 to fund at least six months of travel in the coming year.
This year’s runner-up title went to Charles Sharpless — a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Texas Tech University College of Architecture — for his project, “Frame for Books”. As the runner-up, he’ll automatically be a part of next year’s final competition.
The 2018 jury included: Grace La, principal, La Dallman Architects; Alex Anmahian AIA, principal, Anmahian Winton Architects; Rania Ghosn, principal, Design Earth; Steven Foote FAIA, vice president of the Rotch Travelling Scholarship Committee; and Peter Wiederspahn AIA, graduate programs coordinator, Northeastern University School of Architecture, and secretary of the Rotch Travelling Scholarship Committee
