Antony Wood visits exhibition

Antony, DNC, Ankur, Phil, Suruchi
19 July 2011: Antony Wood, who was the member of staff here who created the Tall Buildings design studio, visited the University to be awarded his PhD in Architecture. He has earned this through a distinguished record of publication and service to architecture at the CTBUH. He spent part of the morning with us, viewing the exhibition and finding out how we had run the course this year - 12 months ago he visited us to award our course at Nottingham the first official professional accreditation as a center of Tall Building teaching.
   He met two of our current STB students, Ankur and Suruchi Modi (who won the prizes in London March 2011 and Prague May 2011).
   Antony is on a short trip to England with his entire family, and will be returning to Chicago soon. Immediately after this meeting, we had to take down the exhibition (sadly), but we have kept all the drawings and models in case there's another chance for a show of the work. Phil took off for the airport to spend a couple of weeks at the Venice Tall Buildings Summer School.
