KPF has announced two recipients of the 2019 Paul Katz Fellowship for study in Tel Aviv, Israel. The winners, Zhonghui Zhu and Miriam Alexandroff, are M.Arch candidates at Princeton and Harvard, respectively.
The 2019 Paul Katz Fellowship is a competitive award established and granted by KPF to honor the life and work of former KPF principal Paul Katz. The award helps M.Arch candidates pursue further research on global urbanism upon graduation from any one of the five schools at which Paul studied or taught: Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and the University of Pennsylvania.
Zhonghui Zhu earned the award for his fellowship proposal regarding the evolution of the Tel Aviv shoreline as a site of urban renewal and political contestation. Miriam Alexandroff’s winning fellowship proposal focuses on sustainable city infrastructure and climate adaptation in Tel Aviv. KPF also announced three honorary mentions: Sheila Lin (Princeton), Quintin Yiu (Columbia), and Shining Sun (Harvard).
The Paul Katz Fellowship is supported through the generosity of people who worked closely with Mr. Katz, including friends, clients, colleagues, and KPF.
