Dana Cuff Activist of the Year Award
Professor Dana Cuff Awarded Architectural Record's 2019 Women in Architecture Activist of the Year
A huge congratulations to Dana Cuff, professor and director of cityLAB-UCLA, for being awarded Architectural Record's 2019 Women in Architecture Activist of the Year award! Established in 2014, the awards series recognizes design leadership across five categories and promotes the visibility and contributions of women to the field.
Dana joins an impressive roster of distinguished recipients, including Toshiko Mori, Sharon Johnston, Claire Weisz, and Mabel O. Wilson. The winners were chosen by an independent jury: its members were architects Jill Lerner of KPF, Jing Liu of SO-IL, and Tomas Rossant of Ennead; the San Francisco Chronicle’s architecture critic John King; and Rosalie Genevro, executive director of The Architectural League. The awards will be celebrated at a forum and ceremony in New York City on October 30.
