AUSTIN, TX - Furman + Keil Architects is proud to announce that one of their newest team members, Ann Marie McCollum, was recently selected for The American Institute of Architects, 2015 Annual Emerging Professionals Exhibition. The competition is an annual exhibition promoting the outstanding work of rising architectural professionals across North America. The exhibition is held at the AIA National headquarters in Washington, D.C., and is an opportunity for the nominees to bring exposure to their work and the firms they represent.
Ann Marie’s selected work is entitled Re-Interpretation Through Translation, a comprehensive investigation seeking to identify the notion of place, through the analysis, representation, measure, rationalization, translation, and re-interpretation of the rituals that occur in everyday life. Through personal experiences in different cities, a vast series of sketches, models, and drawings were developed as a set of tools of techniques and methodologies. These techniques helped develop a construct of an entirely new cultural landscape that would allow individuals to seek their identity, culture, sense of place, and sense of belonging through the notion of measurement that exists in the rituals of everyday life.
After graduating in May 2014 with her Master’s in Architecture from the University of South Florida, Ann Marie moved to Austin in search of a collaborative, design-focused architecture firm. Ann Marie joined Furman + Keil Architects in September 2014. Please join us in congratulating Ann Marie for her hard work and dedication!
