Moddrell Wins 2020 Emerging Voices Award

Moddrell Wins 2020 Emerging Voices Award

Andrew Moddrell, a visiting assistant professor of architecture, has been awarded a 2020 Emerging Voices award from the Architectural League of New York. 

Emerging Voices highlights the work of individuals and firms in North America. The award winners distinguished themselves with distinct design styles, and were chosen because the jury found they have the potential to influence architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design. Each Emerging Voice winner exemplifies creative thinking and innovative approaches to the study of design and architecture. 

During the fall 2019 semester, Moddrell taught an urban design studio at Taubman College that helped students develop expert mastery of the Chicago Grid (past, present, and future). Previously, he was the 2015–2016 Eliel Saarinen Visiting Assistant Professor at Taubman College.

Moddrell is on the faculty of the University of Illinois-Chicago, where he teaches seminars and design studios related to contemporary issues of urbanism. He is a founding director of PORT, where he leads a diverse range of public realm and urban design projects. His current projects include Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness Gateway Park and the Lakeview Low-Line in Chicago.
