Pratt Institute/  Jil Berenblum

Design for the Rowena Reed Kostellow Award at Pratt Institute that celebrated the philosophy and expression of one of the most recognized design educators of the 20th century.

Each year, a professional who celebrates and practices Kostellow’s philosophy is awarded the prize. A student then has the opportunity to design the award, using her philosophy as inspiration. My form was inspired by a dancer while implementing her convexity philosophy, which taught students how to make forms from chiseling bricks of plaster.
