Congratulations to Mitchell Keck, Student ASID, winner of 2021 ASID Foundation David Barrett Memorial Scholarship!

The David Barrett Memorial Scholarship is awarded biennially to recognize the work of an outstanding undergraduate or graduate student who demonstrates an interest and ability in utilizing classical design elements and traditional materials in their work. Classical design is aligned with Greek and Roman design principals.

Classical design elements are consistently influential in his design process. Mitchell impressed this year's jury with his detailed portfolio and commitment to an understanding of classical design. As this year’s recipient, he will receive a $12,000 scholarship! You can view Mitchell’s winning portfolio.
