SAIC HPRES students Melanie Bishop, Brenda Bohen, Joyce Ramos, and Meredith Stewart were awarded an Honorable Mention in the distinguished HABS Holland Prize 2016. Joyce Ramos was the delineator.  The competition included 9 entries from across the United States. There were three prizes issued. The SAIC team was sponsored by faculty member Charles Pipal, with aid from teaching assistant Emily Marie Barton. The National Park Service annual award is given to the best single sheet documentation of a noteworthy work of architecture.
