Chloe Neuvirth

The College of Architecture is pleased to announce that interior design student, Chloe Neuvirth, received first place in Gensler's Brinkmann Scholarship competition for her project entitled “CONTINUUM - A design study investigating the relationship between food, city, and the interior built environment.”

As part of her award Neuvirth will be given a tuition scholarship for her fourth-year, plus a 10-week internship at the Gensler location of her choice which happens to be San Francisco.

"The Brinkmann scholarship provides an opportunity to explore the world of design with the people who challenge the way we live," Neuvirth said. "I feel honored that Gensler saw a spark in me and values my passion. I am grateful to be a part of their team!” 

For her project, Neuvirth proposed creating a cultural food hub in the now mothballed, Pershing Center which once served as an entertainment epicenter in downtown Lincoln. Neuvirth’s concept would bring back life to the Pershing and food and culture to a food desert in central Lincoln.

Congratulations again Chloe Neuvirth on this well-deserved honor!
