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.
