The University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Architecture is committed to instructing, researching, exploring, and promoting design excellence. However, the alumni awards and recognition pieces that it bestows on award winners and to significant contributors is anything but excellent in design. Recognizing the need for honoring achievements though a higher form of expression, a low-tech solution was designed that better aligns with the College of Architecture.
Thirteen custom recognition awards were designed for alumni award winners and outgoing leadership of the College of Architecture Friends Association (CAFA). Fabricated from 12 gauge hot rolled pickled and oiled steel bent plate with the CAFA logo and year laser cut out and laser engraved text.
Dimensions: 4"D x 4"W x 12"H
Available for purchase.
