A Post From China from Eduardo Castaneda, 2014 Mary Kolb Berglund Traveling Fellow
One of the most vital programs that the Dallas Center for Architecture Foundation administers is its scholarship and fellowship program for student and young architects. Each year, $10,000 or more is distributed to students and architects from across the state and country. This includes the traveling fellowship program: three awards granted for senior architecture students or recent graduates to travel and further their research. Here is a report from Eduardo Castaneda who used his funding from the Mary Kolb Berglund Traveling Fellowship to study urbanization in Asia.

Film Screening: Heatherwick
We will close out the 2014 Architecture Film Series with a special holiday open house and screening of a short documentary on designer Thomas Heatherwick, currently the subject of an exhibition at the Nasher Sculpture Center. The film centers around a daring proposal, first made by actress Joanna Lumley, to build a garden-topped pedestrian bridge across the river Thames. You'll see some of his other daring creations as well: the cauldron for the 2012 Olympic Games, a provocative redesign of the London double decker bus, chairs resembling oversized spinning tops, and the giant "hairy" cube he built to represent Britain at the World Expo.
