The Agora Journal of Urban Planning and Design has been awarded a Douglas Haskell Award for Student Journals from the American Institute of Architects (AIA). This prestigious award supports student journalism on architecture, planning, and related subjects, and fosters regard for intelligent criticism among future professionals.
“We are so honored that Agora received this recognition from the AIA. Agora is lucky to have an incredible, dedicated team of authors, staff, and photographers who helped make Agora 16 a success,” said Caroline Lamb and Laura Melendez, the publication’s editors-in-chief.
The Agora Journal of Urban Planning and Design, printed annually in April, is an award-winning, annual, student-run, peer-reviewed publication of the University of Michigan. The Journal’s staff is comprised of graduate students enrolled in Taubman College’s Master of Urban and Regional Planning program. In addition to long-form articles on planning and policy, Agora publishes work from a wide range of perspectives across the University including spatial analysis, design, and photography.
