Professor Ang Li, School of Architecture, Awarded University Design Research Fellowship from Exhibit Columbus

Professor Ang Li.

Professor Ang Li, School of Architecture, has been awarded a University Design Research Fellowship (UDRF) from Exhibit Columbus, a program of Landmark Columbus Foundation that embodies its mission by being a locally responsive and globally engaged proponent for the design heritage of Columbus. The fellowship recognizes professors of architecture, landscape architecture, and design from American universities who are leaders in their fields – and who will create installations highlighting their research.

The recipients of the University Design Research Fellowships were selected for their ability to tackle specific sets of issues germane to the future of the city and the Mississippi Watershed region, such as sustainability and material reuse, non-human habitat, watershed ecologies, emergent technologies, and migration. The University Design Research Fellows for 2020–2021 are:

Ang Li

Ersela Kripa and Stephen Mueller
