The Haskell Award was founded to encourage student journalism on architecture, planning, and related subjects and to foster regard for intelligent criticism among future professionals. The award is named for architectural journalist and editor Douglas Haskell, editor of Architectural Forum from 1949 to 1964, where he was very influential in stopping the demolition of Grand Central Station.
2022 AWARD RECIPIENTS
Telesis Volume 4: Isolation, University of Oklahoma Gibbs College of Architecture ($1,500)
The purpose of Telesis, the student journal of the University of Oklahoma (OU) Christopher C. Gibbs College of Architecture, is to reinforce the creative freedom of OU students while providing an outlet for them to participate in important theoretical conversations about design. Telesis was conceived of by students as the re-incarnation of OU Architecture’s student journal from the 1970s, a playful and irreverent publication. This year’s topic, “Isolation” offers a platform for students to discuss the systemic changes required to dismantle the systemic injustice in our built environments. The voices included in this issue advocate for accessibility, compassion, dignity, resilience, trust, and creativity in creating a more equitable future.
The Telesis Team includes Angela Persen, PhD; Evan Sack; Ben DeCuyper; and Ryan Godfrey. The primary faculty advisor is Angela Person.
