Louis Vuitton SPARK Award

The Louis Vuitton Spark Award, sponsored by Louis Vuitton and the City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, honors an outstanding student from the College of Architecture's undergraduate and graduate Cloud Studio program reflecting the College's focus on the City of Chicago and "Rethinking Metropolis." 

The recipient of the annual Louis Vuitton SPARK Award will travel to Paris to meet with the Louis Vuitton architecture department responsible for the designs of Louis Vuitton boutiques around the world. The winning project will also be featured in an installation in the Louis Vuitton store on Michigan Avenue in Chicago later this summer.

The award ceremony is part of the College of Architecture's Dean's Lecture Series featuring a lecture by the architectural photographer Iwan Baan on April 23rd, 2015 in S. R. Crown Hall.
