    American Institute of Architects (AIA) National and Huron Valley Chapter Graduate Scholarship

    April 24, 2013, Ann Arbor, MI, The University of Michigan's Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning announced the 2013 AIA National/AIA Huron Valley Graduate Scholarships. Awards were presented to students whose projects “embody the exciting promise of realization while addressing real world challenges.” A jury of architects representing the AIA Huron Valley Chapter selected this year’s recipients and chose from student work showcased in the College’s 2011 Architecture Student Show titled, "Spree."

    A total of $2,500,  $1,000 of which was provided by AIA National as a 2013 AIA Component Scholarship grant, was awarded to undergraduate student, Carlos Pompeo and graduate students, Lyla Feinsod, Lijing Qian, and Annie-Locke Scherer.

    Carlos Pompeo was born and raised in Valencia, Venezuela and now lives in Orlando, FL with his family. After obtaining his Associates in Architecture from Valencia College, with honors, he moved to Michigan to study at Taubman College. Since arriving, he has competed and won at both yearly student shows. He hopes to earn his M. Arch within the next 4 years and begin to teach and engage in the field of architecture as a fabricator and academic.

    Lyla Feinsod grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She followed her passion for design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sustainable Interior Design which introduced her to her true passion: architecture. She is currently pursuing her Master of Architecture degree.

    Lijing Qian is from Anhui, China. She received her Bachelor of Architecture at Hefei University of Technology and is now a graduate student in the architecture program at Taubman College.

    Annie-Locke Scherer, originally from Pasadena, CA, will be receiving a Master of Architecture degree next April. She did her undergraduate work at the University of Virginia, receiving a B.A. in Architecture with honors in 2012. She has a background in digital fabrication and hopes to pursue a Master of Science in Digital Technologies at Taubman College in the fall of 2014.

    AIA Huron Valley is comprised of registered architects from Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe, and Washtenaw counties. The chapter engages in initiatives to increase the public’s knowledge and appreciation of architecture and the built environment, as well as promote advocacy for the profession.

    Through scholarships, mentorships, and collaborative programs with architecture students, Taubman College and AIA Huron Valley hope to enhance connections between architecture programs and professional practice.

    Chapter members Aaron Vermeulen (chair), Charles Bultman, Jessica Green, and Bonnie Greenspoon served as the 2013 scholarship awards jury.

    We regret to inform you of the passing of Professor Emeritus S. Glen Paulsen who died this past Sunday.

    Michigan architect S. Glen Paulsen died at the age of 95 on November 25, 2012, at his home in Chelsea, Michigan. He was preceded in death in 2011 by his wife and indispensable partner of 67 years Virginia H. PaulsenundefinedJennie, and his granddaughter Joy Lynn Marshall. Glen’s sister Helen MacInnis and her husband Don also are deceased. Still living are children Thomas Paulsen and his wife Rita of Derby, Connecticut, and Nancy Marshall, husband John (deceased), now of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Glen and Jennie’s remaining grandchildren are Jordan Marshall and his wife Victoria, Anthony Marshall and his wife Kristy, and Tristan Paulsen; great grandchildren are Cassandra Paulsen, Aaron and Malek Rickett (Marshall), and Bella Joy Marshall.

    Glen discovered architecture when he was a junior in high school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Architecture became his life-long passion. He attended three schools to acquire his professional education. WWII interrupted his education at The University of Illinois, and he completed his degree after the war at The University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. His last formal education was acquired at the Royal Academy of Arts, Stockholm, through an American Scandinavian Foundation Fellowship.

    The next most influential experience of Glen’s career came from his association with Eliel and Eero Saarinen. This was the beginning of Glen’s career in Michigan and also of his association with and love for Cranbrook in Bloomfield Hills. The artists and architects he met throughout his career became life-time friends and, together, their generation shaped post-war modern architecture.

    Glen taught architecture for many years at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning and also enjoyed a long association with Cranbrook Academy of Art. From 1966-1970, Glen served as president of the Art Academy while continuing as head of the architecture studio and operating Glen Paulsen and Associates. GPA merged with Tarapata, MacMahon Associates of Bloomfield Hills in 1969, becoming TMP Architecture. Inc. In addition, Glen was pleased to be a member of the Michigan Society of Architects and an AIA Fellow.

    Gifted with the ability to form lasting relationships with his students and colleagues, Glen was a natural mentor. It was gratifying to him that many of the men and women he taught and mentored kept in touch with him throughout their careers. Their letters, calls, and visits gave him a great deal of pleasure.

    Glen’s memorial service will be held at the First United Methodist Church, 128 Park St., Chelsea, Michigan 48118, on December 8, 2012, at 2 pm. A reception will follow the service.

    Glen was focused on leaving a legacy to help the educational institutions he loved. If you would like to share in his legacy, contributions in his memory may be made to either of the following: Taubman College of Architecture Alumni Scholarship Endowment, UM, 2000 Bonisteel Blvd, Ann Arbor, MI  48109, or The S. Glen Paulsen Memorial Fund, c/o Cranbrook Academy of Art, PO Box 801, Bloomfield Hills, MI  48303-0801.

    There’s still time to submit your board for display at Archifest and for the Archifest board exhibit traveling around the Huron Valley area in 2013 (boards are due electronically by 10/11/2012). All costs for printing and mounting are covered by the registration fee! The Archifest title-block is the same as for the Honor Awards title-block (except the date of course) so you can always tweak your honor award submission and re-submit for inclusion in the exhibit... get that extra mileage out of your previous submissions!!!
