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!”
