In a very rare and prestigious occasion the students of the College of Architecture at Illinois Institute of Technology received the award for 2010 AIA Chicago Distinguished Building Honor Award. The Field Chapel in Baden-Wurttemberg Germany was part of Professor Frank Flury’s 2009 Design/Build studio. Here you can check out our featured article about this project with photographs and sketches of the whole design/build process.

Jurors were quoted stating the following about the Field Chapel, ” we’re not able to contain our enthusiasm”, and “it’s such an honest building”.  One final juror noted that, “before I came here today, I didn’t want to see yet another building made out of sticks.  But I saw a great one here.”
