Steven Mankouche receives merit award in BSA's 2008 Unbuilt Architecture Design Awards Program

Steven Mankouche, principal of Atelier Mankouche, working with graduate students Zain Abuseir, Beth Wilson, and Brittany Guercio, received a merit award in the BSA’s 2008 Unbuilt Architecture Design Awards Program for their project “L’Isola Filtrata, Sacca San Mattia, Murano-Venice” (The Filtering Island…) This will be one of four projects that will be the focus of a special forum at Build Boston, the annual design convention in Boston, scheduled for November 2008. This forum will begin with the presentation of the awards and an informal discussion led by the jurors will focus on the award-winning projects and will also explore intriguing issues raised by other entries including those submitted by designers at Machado and Silvetti Associates in Boston and Ino Architects in Norcross, Georgia, by Moskow Linn Architects in Boston, and by JunSang Yon in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
