Yuria J. Sloane of Charleston, South Carolina, plans to travel this summer to Bolivia, Japan, New Zealand and Norway to research the use of architecture as a tool of oppression and liberation for indigenous communities. Her itinerary includes studies of architect Freddy Mamani's聽El Cholets in El Alto, Bolivia; the聽Okinawa Prefectural Museum by聽Ishimoto Architectural and Engineering Firm in Naha, Okinawa;聽architecture firm Tennent Brown鈥檚 Te Wharehou o Waikaremoana in Te Urewera, New Zealand; and architects聽Christian Sunby鈥檚 and Stein Halvorsen鈥檚 Sameting in Karasjok, Norway.

鈥淩eceiving this award has been eye opening to the possibilities of architectural work outside of traditional practice,鈥 Sloane said. 鈥淚 have never had an opportunity presented that allowed me to research something so personally important to me. It has inspired me to possibly follow a research-focused path during my schooling and beyond.鈥

Assistant Professor Silvina Lopez Barrera will advise Sloane in her research.

鈥淏eing of an indigenous group myself, I have found myself drawn to buildings with deep cultural motivations,鈥 Sloane said. 鈥淲hen we think about modern examples of indigenous architecture, we cannot ignore the social elements that surround them and their ability to have a platform in the architecture industry. I settled on my topic because I think it is important to look at how architecture was used to harm and can now be used to repair.鈥

The $2.4 million endowment鈥攅stablished by late Memphis architect Alfred Lewis Aydelott and his wife Hope Galloway Aydelott鈥攑rovides an award each year to four architecture students currently enrolled in the professional architecture degree programs at Mississippi State, as well as the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville; Auburn University; and the University of Tennessee.

Additionally, rising senior architecture major Anna Rives Gully of Starkville is receiving a $4,750 Trussell Travel Award sponsored by 澳门六合彩开奖结果查询 School of Architecture alumnus Ted T. Porter to support her research on Daniel Libeskind鈥檚 Jewish Museum in Berlin, Germany. She will be specifically looking into how the building addresses and fits into the societal context of Berlin, defined by World War II and the Holocaust. Gully will further her contextual understanding of World War II in Europe through additional travels to Austria and Prague.
