May 28, 2015

Katherine WilliamsArchitectural History alumna Katherine Williams (M.A. 2014) received the Thesis Document Award for the top thesis at SCAD submitted in 2014.  Her thesis, “The Social Implications of Architectural Improvement: How Approaches to Poverty Influence the Success of Urban Revitalization in Over-the-Rhine,” considers the architectural changes and their social implications in urban renewal efforts in the Over-the-Rhine neighbourhood of Cincinnati in the twenty-first century, and suggests that limited community input and a lack of consideration for mixed incomes precluded the success of those efforts.

Her thesis is the second in the history of the department to receive this college-wide honour.  Click here to view her thesis.
