    Archinect - 04/24/2017

    Awarded every other year by the AIA College of Fellows, the Latrobe Prize is a major award—$100,000—granted to a two-year project that leads “to significant advances in the architectural profession.” This year, the award, which is named after architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, was given to a team of three faculty members of Northeastern University’s School of Architecture and Resilient Cities Laboratory.

    Their project is titled “Future-Use Architecture”, and focuses on “the balance between flexible and fixed building systems to respond to unforeseeable contingencies while conserving the essential architectural design and performance.” In other words, the project seeks to study how to design for unknown futures, with a focus on adaptive reuse and regeneration.
