Master of Architecture student Jamie Lipson is one of the two recipients of this year's Ike Kligerman Barkley Traveling Fellowship.
Jamie will research Connemara marble, a rare green colored stone unique to Western Ireland. He aspires to address the lack of scholarship on Connemara marble's use in architecture through rigorous fieldwork related to sites of production and manufacturing, close readings of Connemara marble architecture, archival research, scientific material analysis, and collaboration with local experts.
The Ike Kligerman Barkley Traveling Fellowship is comprised of up to $12,000 in prize funds awarded annually for both travel and research for up to two graduate students in their penultimate year. The intent of the IKB Traveling Fellowship is to consider the intersection between traditional and contemporary design.
