MOM19 Student Design Award

Design is all around us, rooting us to our past and sowing the seeds for our future. Just like we admire great historical monuments, we also look forward and envision what the landscape of tomorrow will be. This is why Month of Modern places such importance on discovering and promoting new generations of architects, and those who will build on the foundation of the masters to forge new paths of innovation and development.

The Month of Modern CU Student Design Award celebrates students in architecture, interior, landscape and urban design who are pushing the boundaries and developing future environments in ways that enrich lives utilizing new, exciting technologies and materials.

An award designed and presented by Todd Reed will be granted to one participant and aims to enrich the designer’s pursuance of their career and professionalism.

“I wanted to be involved in Month of Modern primarily to show my enthusiasm for community and design, ” Reed explains. “Having the award go to an emerging designer is special for me as I firmly believe in cultivating a space for new and creative design that challenges what we are familiar with.”
