The opportunity to travel and deeply explore my interests in architecture and design was an incredible one. Participating in the competition and all the future work that has been an incredible experience that has further fueled my desire to improve my skill-set and design better spaces. I am very grateful and feel very privileged to have had this incredible experience. Thank you to my mentor and the people at the Lyceum foundation who organize this competition every year for making all this possible

Overall, this was absolutely a life-changing trip.

Joshua Antolovic 2017, 1st Place

By starting graduate school immediately after, I could see the reflection of my travels in my studio work. If it weren’t for this fellowship, I would not have been exposed to the concepts that drove my design experimentation. Once again, thank you so much for this unforgettable experience!
