Pedro Pitarch of Spain was last year’s winner of the Steedman Fellowship competition, which includes a $50k travel grant. Among largest U.S. architecture awards for young architects, Pitarch’s entry, “This Train is my Bedroom,” deals with the boundary between public and private spaces. According to jury chair, Mason White, “The jury was impressed with Pitarch’s range of experimentation and invention,” White explained. “Several jurors noted that both his previous work and the proposed research show an approach that is at once methodical, experimental and fantastically intricate. Additionally, the subject of property was found to be timely and relevant worldwide.”
The Steedman competition is administered by the Department of Architecture at Washington University, St. Louis.
