My name is Christina and I'm an architecture student at Arizona State University.

Last semester, I was awarded the Dan and Dawn Horvat Travel Endowment and the Sean Murphy Memorial Prize. Over the next three weeks, I’ll be attending Clerkenwell Design Week, la Biennale Architettura, and Barcelona Design Week. Then, in mid-June, I'll be heading over to Germany where I’ll spend the remainder of the summer investigating the postwar urban reconstruction and memory landscapes of eight different cities.

After months in the making, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I want to extend my deepest thanks to Dan and Dawn Horvat and the Rio Salado Architecture Foundation. None of this would be possible without your continued support each and every year for young and eager explorers like myself.

Stay tuned for occasional updates and photos from my travels this summer!
