Harvard University Graduate School of Design degree candidate Miriam Alexandroff (MArch ’19) has been awarded the 2019 Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) Paul Katz Fellowship, an internationally competitive award established and administered by the KPF Foundation in honor of the life and work of former KPF Principal Paul Katz. Alexandroff is one of the two recipients this year, while the GSD’s Shining Sun (MArch ’19) was one of three Honorable Mentions.
The KPF Paul Katz Fellowship is given each year to assist international students in their pursuit of studying issues of global urbanism upon graduation from a masters of architecture program from one of the five East Coast schools at which Paul Katz studied or participated as a teacher. Scholars are selected by a jury of leading architects and urbanists appointed by the KPF Foundation on a rotating basis.
Alexandroff’s honor follows similar GSD participation in 2018, when Eduardo Martínez-Mediero Rubio (MArch ’19) was awarded one of three KPF Traveling Fellowships and Sonny Xu (MArch ’18, MLA ’18) received one of two KPF Paul Katz Fellowships.
Alexandroff was recently profiled by the GSD’s Work in Progress series, sharing her final project for the Fall 2018 option studio “UTOPIA/DYSTOPIA: Living Post-Work” led by Annabelle Selldorf.
