2003

Judson University’s Department of Architecture Community Service May 2003, under the leadership of Prof. David Amundson, designed houses for the Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity chapter.  The student work (Rich Blair, Joe Buehler, Nathaniel Funk, Jesse Lawrence, Jeremy Lindsey, Simon Little, Leanne Olson, and Joni Priest; all M.Arch.’05) for the bungalows was directed by David Amundson and Professor Nathaniel Brooks, M.Arch.’03.  David Amundson and the Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity chapter realized the construction of the houses with Tinaglia Architects as the Block Build project.  The houses were occupied beginning in December 2005.  Since then the effort has been recognized in the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary’s Silver Award for Excellence, 2006, (reported by H.U.D.’s Office of Policy Development and Research in HUD User) and Chicago’s Metropolitan Planning Council in Home Grown: Local Housing Strategies in Action under the category of Housing Development:  Elgin, Block Build. The project was also reported by Housing Zone’s Professional Builder under 2006 Best in American Living Award: Silver: HUD Secretary’s Award for Excellence.  Most recently this project was cited in Marga Jann and Stephen Platt, Philanthropic Architecture: Nongovernmental Development Projects in Latin America, Journal of Architectural Education, Spring 2009.

The City Hall for Elgin, Illinois, thesis project by Nathaniel Brooks, M.Arch.’03, was featured in the Institute for Classical Architecture’s call for student work to be published in The Classicist.  See this call at the International Network of Building, Architecture, and Urbanism News Archive, 2004.
