With over 65 initial entrants, the six 2015 Rotch Travelling Scholarship finalists endured two rigorous stages of competition. Final presentations were given on April 9 to a group of distinguished jurors including James Dallman AIA, partner at La Dallman Architects Inc.; Sam Choi, associate teaching professor at Northeastern University; Jill Kaehler, project manager at Behnisch Architekten; Steven Foote FAIA, vice president of the Rotch Travelling Scholarship; and Peter Wiederspahn AIA, secretary of the Rotch Travelling Scholarship.
This year, the top and runner-up honors were awarded to female designers.
A small display featuring all submission boards is now on view in the Harbor Room at BSA Space. Stop by to see the exceptional design work of these young designers.

About the Rotch Travelling Scholarship
Founded in 1883 in honor of Benjamin Smith Rotch, the Rotch Travelling Scholarship is the oldest of its kind in the United States and its influence has been felt throughout the entire architecture profession. This annual two-stage design competition results in one person, deemed the Rotch Scholar, traveling the world for at least six months studying architecture.
