The 2016 Build Architecture Awards have recognized Philadelphia University’s M.S. in Sustainable Design, noting the unique transdisciplinary collaborative program leads in preparing future leaders.

The awards highlight “the amazing work done by the talented designers, artists and visionaries whose talent and innovation have created talking points that will span generation,” the organizers said.

“Unlike other design schools that reward individual achievement and competition, we focus on open source, collaborative learning aimed at a greater purpose,” said Rob Fleming, director of the M.S. in Sustainable Design program. “We’ve eliminated design juries which typically come at the end of a semester and replaced them with integrated design charrettes at the beginning of the semester. This allows students to build upon the participation of experts in a variety of fields.”
