Megan Turner EA’11 received word this summer that she was named the Cote Fellow for 2012-13, a prestigious prize jointly given by the American Institute of Architecture Students and the American Institute for Architects. The award is a wonderful sign of Megan’s manifold abilities (and her future) as an architect! But then we knew that already: her 2011 thesis, in which she probed the post-construction data generated by PO Lincoln-Edmunds buildings, and demonstrated that they failed (and badly so) to live up to the standards of LEED-Gold certification, was a tour de force. Surely that’s one reason why the faculty at Cal Poly-Pomona’s architecture program snapped her up; she is now in her second year there.
