Congratulations to Jennifer Fong on winning the $1,000 James Northcutt Scholarship Award!

Please describe your project?

My project was originally submitted in the Fundamentals of Interior Architecture class.  The objective was to choose a famous designer/architect and create a poster presentation of their work and impact on design.  I chose the famous Spanish architect, Antoni Gaudi.  I was inspired by his innovations in areas of sustainability and the integration of structure with an aesthetic purpose.  My project focused primarily on Casa Batllo in Barcelona, Spain.  I took elements that were iconic to the structure and placed them cohesively on a poster board.  These elements included the “skull” balconies, recycled tile, and doors that opened to the interior attic space.  I took it a step further by integrating 3-dimensional paper-mache to the balcony skull and a pull-out 1-point perspective of the interior attic.  A battery powered light feature lit the depth of the room to emulate the actual light in the Casa Batllo.

How did you come up with the concept for your project?

Similar to understanding the design world, I took a very close look at what was successful in previous quarters projects.  After selecting my architect, I figured that the best posters had “special effect” elements integrated into them and thought that was an awesome way to communicate the architect’s work.  A picture of the interior attic space of the Casa Batllo also inspired me because the specific type of arch, a “drop-chain” arch, was also used as load-baring within the structure.

How will the scholarship help you meet your career goals and aspirations?

This scholarship is really a representation of God’s grace upon me.  I don’t deserve it, but I am so thankful for this portion of school funding.  This has helped me continue to take classes, as I hope to eventually complete the Masters of Interior Architecture degree.  I am honored that my ideas do matter, and I hope to use this award as a reminder to keep propelling forward in my studies.

From your experiences in the Certificate of Interior Design program, what helpful insights would you share with prospective students?

I’ve found that the people in this program want to grow just as much as you do.  Everyone is willing to help one another because we’re all trying to accomplish the same goal.  If you’re thinking about applying to this program, know that it can be rigorous at times, but you have people along side you to finish the race with.

The $1,000 James Northcutt Scholarship Award tuition credit award that is granted based upon the excellence of your work in the Fundamentals of Interior Design class. To find out if you are eligible for this scholarship or others, please see the Arc+ID Scholarships and Financial Aid information page.
