Congratulations to Beth Fortune, winner of the $3,000 Howard Hirsch Design Scholarship Award!

Beth Fortune 1Beth Fortune is a current student in the Advanced Level/Master’s Program and is new to the world of Interior Architecture, but not to design. Prior to enrolling in the Arc+ID program, Beth was an Art Director in advertising as well as a Photo Stylist. However, Interior Design is where she believes she belongs. “I’m excited to have found a career path in which there is endless opportunity for learning and growth,” Beth exclaims, “I’m eager to be part of a profession that makes people’s lives better by shaping and improving the spaces that surround them. I feel that I have found my place in the world.”

Beth was awarded the $3,000 Howard Hirsch Design Scholarship for her Studio III project, which was nominated by her instructor, Chinmaya Misra. Her project addressed dual-use programming with a furniture solutions company housing both showroom and offices in a 2,600 square-foot space in an historic downtown Los Angeles building.

“Studio III was a great introduction to the Master’s program. Professor Misra challenged students to take their projects to the next level. Her feedback was focused and very smart, and resulted in professional level projects from everyone in the class.”

From Design Communication I on, Beth has appreciated the real-world experience each Arc+ID instructor brings to class—and is grateful that so many instructors choose to give back to the profession by teaching.

We asked Beth to share a piece of advice for students who are looking to pursue the Master of Interior Architecture program. Here’s what she had to say: “Make the most of your time in school. It can be hard to appreciate when we’re overwhelmed with school work, but this is our time to experiment, learn, and find our design voices with support and feedback that, for the most part, does not exist in the professional world. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, that’s the best way to learn. Oh, and to answer the age-old question of AutoCAD or Revit: both!”

Congratulations to Nicole Perry, winner of the $1,000 James Northcutt Scholarship Award!

Nicole Perry 2Nicole Perry’s first project in the ARC+ID program resulted in a $1,000 scholarship!

Originally from the Bay Area, Nicole Perry received her B.A. in Arts Management from University of the Pacific. After college, she moved to Italy where she lived and worked for a prominent Italian family, while studying the language, culture and art. When she moved back to the US, she settled in Los Angeles, where she began working in the entertainment industry as a television talent agent and where she also met her husband.

Over the years, Nicole turned her interests to design. She built and remodeled a number of homes and properties for both personal and investment purposes. Eventually, Nicole decided to enroll in the ARC+ID Program to turn her passion into a career.

In Fundamentals of Interior Architecture, her first class at UCLA Extension, she had to design a board representing an architect or designer, detailing the elements that define the person’s significance. Because of her Italian-studies background, Nicole decided to focus her project around the famed renaissance architect, Filippo Brunelleschi, an architect, a mathematician, engineer, inventor and visionary.

“I attempted to demonstrate how the combination of all of his talents lead to him solving a centuries-old problem of how to build the then largest dome in the world. In addition, he is also credited as one of the inventors of linear perspective. On my board I recreated a device that Brunelleschi invented to test/prove his theories of perspective.”

Eleanor Schrader, the instructor for Fundamentals of Interior Design, inspired all of the students in the class to deliver top quality work not only by bringing in amazing lecturers, but also through her passion for the subject. Upon finding out her project was the winner of the James R. Northcutt Scholarship, Nicole noted, “the program is filled with so many smart ambitious students, so the bar is set very high within the classroom. I was very surprised to learn I had won, because there were so many outstanding design boards. We have some really talented students!”

The James R. Northcutt Scholarship for Beginning Students is a $1,000 tuition credit that is granted to one student each quarter who completes the Fundamentals of Interior Architecture course.
