Utz Wins Honorable Mention in 2014 Leicester B. Holland Prize Competition

Adjunct Professor Steve Utz won 2014 Honorable Mention and Cash Prize for the 2014 Leicester B. Holland Prize, for his architectural drawing of Bentley Hall. The Holland Prize, an annual juried competition open to both students and professionals, recognizes the best single-sheet measured drawing of a historic site, structure, or landscape prepared by an individual(s) to HABS/HAER/HALS standards and guidelines. The prize is administered by the Heritage Documentation Programs and the Center for Architecture, Design & Engineering in the Library of Congress. The prize is intended to increase awareness, knowledge, and appreciation of historic resources throughout the United States while adding to the permanent HABS, HAER and HALS collection at the LOC, and to encourage the submission of drawings among professionals and students. By requiring only a single sheet, the competition challenges the delineator to capture the essence of the site through the presentation of key features that reflect its significance. Utz will be sponsoring a team of students interested in learning the skill of architectural documentation and submitting architectural drawings in national competitions.
