Alum Wins SARA-NY Student Merit Award
SSA alum Victoria Graziano (B Arch ’18) garnered a 2019 SARA-NY student merit award for her project From Big Box to Small Squares: Reviving Suburbia. Undertaken in Professor June Williamson’s studio, the project reimagines the site of a failed Sears mall in Hicksville, Long Island. The project proposes to revitalize the suburban fabric through midscale public space, denser mixed-use buildings, and biodiversity. Remaining contextually compatible with the existing neighborhood, the project also fosters community and resiliency on multiple scales.
