A team of graphic documentation students spanning two years at the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture has won the Charles E. Peterson Prize, offered by the Historic American Buildings Survey of the National Park Service, The Athenaeum of Philadelphia and The American Institute of Architects.

The students submitted measured drawings of Austin’s North-Evans Chateau (1874-1960), now the Chateau Bellevue and home of the Austin Woman’s Club, in the Bremond Block National Register Historic District. Members of the winning team were 2012 graduates Yuanjing Du, Thomas Garcia, Andreea Hamilton, Rebecca Lapham, Julie McGilvray and Payal Vora, and second-year students Jessica Anderson, Serena Bolliger, Kalan Contreras, Betsy Frederick-Rothwell, Emily Ray, Samantha Smith, Miriam Tworek-Hofstetter and Katherine Yester. With three floors and decades of additions to cover, the team was in the unique position of working on one project over the course of two fall semesters.

The 2010 class began work with Lecturer Monica Penick, documenting two exterior elevations and the majority of the main floor, and the 2011 students edited the previous year’s drawings and measured the remaining significant spaces with Associate Professor Carl Matthews. Many of the final drawings included work completed by members of both classes.

The Charles E. Peterson Prize “recognizes the best set of measured drawings prepared to HABS standards and donated to HABS by students.” The UT Austin team tied for first with students at Louisiana State University School of Architecture, who documented Fort Proctor in Lake Borgne, Louisiana. This year’s award ceremony will be hosted by the AIA Historic Resources Committee in Washington, D.C., later this fall.
