Congratulations to the 2015 CAFM Scholarship recipients!

Ben Halpern,
M.Arch Student - Harvard Graduate School of Design

"As a total discipline, architecture intersects so heavily with culture, politics, history, art, ecology, and technology that insular design thinking is not an option. With my diverse undergraduate background in civil engineering and fine art--as both a researcher and a creator--I have never been satisfied with a singular approach to solve a problem or a narrow lens through which to see the world."

​"The future of architecture is driven by innovation woven into every aspect of our profession. Rising architects are faced with navigating an intangible network that covers the globe, reshaping the working culture of our profession, and operating in a fully client-driven marketplace."
