Anna Antropova awarded $10,000 RAMSA Travel Fellowship by Robert A.M. Stern Architects

The Partners of Robert A.M. Stern Architects have selected Anna Antropova, a Master’s candidate from the McGill University School of Architecture, to receive the 2014 RAMSA Travel Fellowship. The $10,000 fellowship is presented each year to enable an architecture student to travel and conduct research into the perpetuation of tradition through invention. Antropova is looking to study ancient wood joinery techniques in Japan.

Her submission reads: “This elegant and efficient mode of construction could meaningfully inform our western building industry, an industry addicted to toxic adhesives and an indiscriminate application of metal fasteners. Wood stands to be for our generation what steel and concrete were for the previous two or three, and Japanese joinery offers us a sustainable mode of assembly for a sustainable material with far less embodied energy.”
