The award provides financial assistance to the selected student to undertake a research project based on a field of study of interest to them.

The value of the award is $5,000.00 plus a secondary amount of $3,000.00 for project-related expenses during the course of investigation.

Cohos Evamy is pleased to announce the 2005 recipient is Manson Fung, a third-year Master of Architecture student at the University of British Columbia. The topic chosen by Mr. Fung is “Emergence and Indeterminacy: research on architectural process.” He has proposed to investigate the possible intersection of two modes of operation in architecture the new science of emergence and the notion of indeterminacy in the architectural process.

Upon completion of his research, Mr. Fung will prepare a talk for public presentation in 2006.
