Harvard GSD announces four finalists for 2021 Wheelwright Prize
Prizes and Grants | Department of History of Art and Architecture
There is no competition for this award; eligible submissions will be considered without application. For further information, please contact the Department of English. Abramson wrote a senior thesis on the architecture of Le Corbusier and felt it to be one of the most significant experiences of his undergraduate career. Just two years beyond graduation from the College, and about to enter Law School, Mr. Abramson passed away after a brave battle with cancer. He wished to share his appreciation of the valuable experience of writing a thesis with his fellow concentrators, and so, endowed this prize to recognize annually the greatest achievement of this scholarship by a concentrator in History of Art and Architecture.
