B Arch Alum Wins AIA Brooklyn’s Student Excellence Award

Nadeen Hassan, a 2020 B Arch graduate, has been awarded AIA Brooklyn’s Student Excellence Award for her Spring 2020 studio project with Professor Julie Nelson.

Hassan’s project, the Institute for the Study of Human Resiliency for Queens Botanical Garden, reconnects individuals to nature, water, and elliptical movements to experience meditative and contemplative qualities. The design includes a mixed-use project composed of the main research building, classroom pavilion, and a labyrinth garden. The institute connects spaces, materials, and structures to educate its users on restoration while helping guests begin their healing journey.
