Building arts prize of $5,000 offered

Applications for this term's Marvin E. Goody Prize, a $5,000 award for a master's thesis that advances the building arts, are now available.

Joan E. Goody of Goody, Clancy & Associates in Boston established the prize in 1983 as a memorial to her husband, Marvin E. Goody, an MIT alumnus and faculty member. The award aims to extend building techniques and use of materials, to encourage links between the academic world and the building industry, and to increase appreciation of the bond between good design and good building -- criteria intended to reflect the range of Professor Goody's interests as a teacher, researcher and designer.

The competition is held every January (for theses completed four months later) and May (for theses completed the following January). It is administered by a committee including faculty members from the Departments of Architecture and Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Forms and further information are available in the Department of Architecture headquarters in Rm 7-337. The deadline for applications is 5pm on January 12, 2001. Anyone with questions should contact contact Nancy Jones, x3-4408,
